I started looking for my first 1911 last week.
I was thinking Springfield and then almost bought a Rock Island A1 FS.
Then I saw this one last week at my LGS. I went home and thought about it and then went back today to see if it was still there. It was, so I brought it home. It is used but it is my first and looking forward to taking it to the range

I dig it!


I got my first Springfield a few weeks ago, an A-1 GI model. The previous owner had the slide cut for Novak dovetails and installed Trijicon and 10-8 sights. The machine work, sights, and grips probably cost more than the gun's base price, but it's a no-nonsense blaster now.

Good deal on the sights. Have that GI's ejection port lowered and flared and you will be all set.

Congrats on purchasing your first 1911. I have had my Mil-Spec for just over a month now and love it. Flawless after 300 rounds.
