I got a 1911-a-1 today for a great deal!! Some criminal on parole went into a local gun store. A friend owns it. He puts down 300.00 orders new 1911, it comes in, he can't pass check.
I get the pistol for the amount owed!! The store was on the hook to pay for it, he knew he was on parole, sounds fair to me.
Have not fired it yet, cleaned it tonight seems real nicely made and fitted.
and I'll think of the crook every time I shoot !!!
sometimes there is justice, maybe??

Yeah, tell us more! Which model? Does this criminal have any other friends that want to try ordering Springfields?


Seriously, have fun shooting it and be sure to give it some break-in time.

My new gun is SA 1911-A1, target sights, stainless. Has the NM serial number, I'll look for that Brazil stamp.
The store has been around for over 20 years, the owner got back the results of the back ground check and got mad. The guys deposit is his business, I see both sides I guess, the guy is a crook and knows it. I wonder if he just hoped it would slip through. The store was burgled several years ago and is alarmed well now, even had a guy try to shoplift a hand gun once, so I understand the owners frustration.
