A few days ago I scooped up a used Springer Milspec GI for a pretty good deal at the local gun shop. I had a Kimber ultra carry before and loved it, as well as access to my dads eclipse custom II, but ended up trading the UC II on an HK USP Compact .45. Well after about 8 months the 1911 bug hit me again so I picked up this base model 1911 hoping I would just be able to shoot it at the range on occasion and not turn it into a hot rod. 100 rds through the pipe today and the lack of a beaver tail among other things (trigger) really made this gun a chore to shoot. Should I try and sell this gun, save a few more pennies and buy a custom 1911 in a few months... or start the endless journey of making this one my own? I know some guys love making the guns their own, and I like new projects, I am just not sure if building a 1911 is in my budget along with everything else I have going on right now. What do you guys think?
