    Sorry for the cruddy picture, my camera wasn't charged.

    Basic Springfield 1911-A1 clone. Stainless, 5" barrel, etc.

    I've wanted a 1911 for a while, and I figure I could start with a basic one and see what I thought.

    It was $529, and I talked him down to $515 (woohoo...). I bought it at McBrides. I'll be going to the show tomorrow as well, got to pick up some .45ACP.

    Yeah, I realized that later. They will honor their online price if you buy it online though, lol.

    The Saxet show is quite good. I think it might be worth the drive, you are in the Killeen area right?

    Took it out to the range today for some break-in. Did fine with both FMJ and HP ammo. The metal soaked up a few coats of oil since I got it, so the gun is ready to go IMO.

    I picked up a stainless Colt magazine at the fun show Saturday for it as well. $9 is a hell of a deal.
