    I had to part with my first and only RIA 1911 tactical about a year ago to pay of some credit card debt (in college $ seems to just spend itself :D). It had left a hole in my heart that only a 1911 could fill. I've got about $1,100 saved up now. I've been looking at the Springfield Armory 1911 loaded in stainless. Would you guys say $830 shipped+FFL tranfered is fair? Or should I get something else? I don't like the idea of spending all of the $1,100 on a gun I would like to save some for ammo and good magazines.

    thanks guys
    :)

    I sent you a PM with an address to a GA site that has lots of guns listed. You may find exactly what you're looking for locally...

    Junho, that is basically what I got mine for. I was gonna have it shipped, so I called a dealer close to here. Turns out, he had one and cut a deal that was roughly equal to the price + transfer. Two weeks later, I saw the exact same package at a gun show for $1000 cash. :eek:

    I just sold two new black stainless loaded Springers for $869.00 each and they are real scarce right now. I think your about to make a very good deal.

    If it makes you feel any better Junho, I have had a 1911 sized hole in my heart for the past two years and still haven't filled that void because of college. Graduate school expenses suck. :(

    Anyway, as some others have suggested if I were you I would save just a little more and get a TRP instead of just a Loaded. If you are going to go with style, then go all the way. ;)

    Can't go wrong with Wilson 47D's and Cane will tell you to use Tripps. I use Chip McCormick Power Mags as my range mags as well...

    Congrats. The Loaded is a rock solid pistol and I'm sure you'll be happy with it.

    As far as mags, go with what has been listed. I use CMC and WC's. I don't have any Tripps.

    Wilson 47D's are usually a good choice and won't break the bank as much as a couple of the others. Chip McCormick is supposed to make some good mags, and they are a bit cheaper, but I have been hit and miss with that brand ( I think they are called Shooting Star mags - the ones I tried ).

    Recently I got my hands on one of Cane's offerings, a Cobra Mag by Tripps Research, and it is very impressive. I have not shot it yet, and I have been meaning to so I can do a write up, but perhaps this weekend. I can tell you this, for a reliable magazine, this thing is pretty friggin sweet and it dry feeds ammo with no problem at all, even on a short stroke of the slide.

    Best advice is find a couple you can borrow and see what the gun likes. If you run into an issue, hit me up by PM and maybe I can find a couple of testers to send your way. ;)

    Really good advice here as 1911s run best with what they like. I had a S&W 1911 that was flawless with CMC Shooting Stars (they are cheap as JD says) and it hated Tripp Cobra Mags. I have yet to own one that didn't like 47D's...
