    Hey all long time, just wondering whats up. Debating on which to get.
    SA 1911 GI $450 + Mosin Nagant $150

    or

    HK USPc 40 $750

    Ive been wanting all three and not sure what to get. I have never shot a 1911 GI before so idk.:noes:

    I just recently purchased a Springfield GI stainless, I put the last of the first 200 rounds I put any semi-auto through for break-in. Great gun, I really like it a lot. I also own two Mosin Nagants, and I highly recommend them. I will get a deer with my 91/30 this year for sure.

    I'd find a way to shoot several guns before I bought one, especially since something like a 1911 should be super easy to find to shoot. Alot of people love a sig 226, I don't. You might wind up not loving the 1911.

    The USP is overpriced too ;)

    Get a C&R license and buy a mosin for half your $150 estimate, and shop around for a used USPc. You can find them online for ~$550 with a very low round count.

    check out summit gun broker, I think he might still have some good deals on USPs. You might be able to get a USP and a Nagant.

    If you're paying $150 for a Mosin, you're paying too much.

    HKs are great but overpriced....they can't do anything better than a GLOCK, SIG Pro, FN FNP, PX4, XD, or M&P or many other handguns except perhaps impress range snobs.

    I paid $139 for my 91/30. The bore is really good with just a little darkness the last 3 inches of the barrel, the finish is still good, and the wood stock is bright and easy on the eyes. Shoots very well. $139 for a more than capable open-sight deer rifle is a bargain.

    What are you going to be using them for and what is your level of experience.

    Welcome back :wavey:

    I'd go with the 1911 and Mosin, $150 is a little high but I guess it depends on what kind it is.
