Bought a springfield 1911 military spec with hogue grips thrown in for free
Click Here for 1911 info
I picked up my first 1911 (a Kimber Pro Carry II) just a few weeks ago.
sweet! how much did that set you back?
i am thinking i am gonna get one of those when i can, though i was leaning towards the original GI spec model
i'm a traditionalist
Wow, i likey.
I paid $429 for the 1911 and they threw in the hogue grips for free.
I want one of those
That IS the GI spec model. That is why it is called the milspec.
I like it too, but I don't care for the trigger, or the spur hammer, and it needs some better sights.
I have those same grips on my Kimber and I love it, it makes a world of difference.
you got raped on that milspec. they should go for no more than $400, and i've seen them as low as $350. i've also seen them as high as $450, so you're not as bad off as you could've been.
by the way, i love those things. i have yet to fondle one with less than an awesome trigger. my only complaint is that they are EXACTLY like the originals, and you can't replace the front sights with anything else. but, they're great, and well priced.
$30 is FUCKING RAPE
okay, so it's not rape, but you got jewed at the least.
I looked at a Sig 239 for $750 last night..that is rape.
yes, sir. rape to the Nth power.
i know its small, but the differences are there, look again
Ok, there are a couple minor differences, but it is basically the same gun. Different sights, and one has slanted cocking serrations, a slightly diff. hammer, and diff. grips, that is all I could tell from that angle.
yep, but those minor things make all the difference, to me at least
original 1911's are my favorite kind
IMO, they are ugly as fuck, but whatever floats your boat. My kind of 1911, is a nice shiny Kimber Eclipse II, even though I could only afford the Custom Classic I.
what's not to like? clean, streamlined design devoid of unnecessary junk(talking strictly looks here)
better looking than glocks
