Well, considering many over 2

This is hours and hours of hand fitting of the slide to frame, THEN the fitting of all the parts ensues, and there are a bunch of parts that have to be hand fit PERFECTLY for looks and function to make a 1911 worth the selling price of over 3K. I hear a good smith like ted yost has over 100 hours inot a complete top endy 1911 of hand fitting and finishing.

If he doesn't back out of the trade, it's a done deal.

Do places like Gander Mountain deal on their guns or do they just hold them until they sell at the advertised price?



Thanks for the 1911 info SniperX!!

think the bargan plasces like Gnader and Sportsmans have such a low margin, they don't deal but it doesn't hurt to go ask them after finding something you are definitely interested in. Here's what I would do, go look at all the 1911s, find one you definitely want to buy, tell the sales man I want this gun...right now, today, but what is the best price out the door, right now you can give me. If he drops it then buy it if not and you knwo you can get it cheaper somewhere else, OR if that is the best price, BUY it! Don't go in with no purchase leverage and ask for a deal, that isn't how a sales person works. They feel if you have money in posket RIGHT NOW and are going to make a purchase, then they will work with you. Now this has to be on a high end firearm because they can sell the entry level cheap stuff to someone else.

This, And sometimes if nothing else you can get a holster or some ammoe thrown in just to seal the deal.

I have a USP .45 Compact. It's my favorite plastic gun, I generally prefer all metal - CZ 75s, 1911s, etc.

I love it. Bought used. About 500 rds through by me. Runs flawless.

Ammo cost not only but 9mm 1911 are hard to come by.

One day you will want to sell it and it is going to go FAST.

Plus, the 1911 is a big gun and you can run the hottest 9mm rounds from it.

38 super becomes a boutique round
