    Do not overlook good used ones. I picked up a nice Tank Officers Model at a pawn shop! Mine is a 'Carry' model so can use standard mag; even my 10-round extended mag. Picked up Baby Eagle at the same shop a while ago - ANIB!

    I have a S&W1911DK just got it two weeks ago so far i've only got 500 rounds through it but it has less kick than my S&W990L and its more accurate.

    I will tell ya, I have been salivating over a springfield 1911 micro-compact .45. They have the bi-tone 3" ramped bull barrel, trijicon night sights and cocobolo thinline grips with mini rail. Problem is I just bought a colt defender. I am trying to find an excuse to get the springer.

    Hey Joe, I hear ya on the colt. My defender was dead on right out of the box. I carry it daily and love it. Still want the springer!

    Yes! The $1300 would be the whole ball of wax. I am going window shopping tomorrow in the middle Tennessee area. I have almost settled on a Sig model. I have read a lot of positive things about their service dept and they have the lifetime warranty.

    The same can be said for most gun manufacturers. I have had Springfields, Kimbers, Para Ordnance and even a Colt that I have sent back for warranty work and the service and time to repair have been what you would expect from them.
    A friend of mine has the SIG GSR and loves his. Good luck on your choice!!
