I have been wanting a 38 Super for some time now. I've never even shot one. But I've got 45 and 40 1911s already so I wanted the other classic 1911 cal. So at this past weekend's gun show, I had a dealer set me back a couple of 38 Supers. They had one blued and one stainless gov. I looked them both over and the blued is nice, no cosmetic flaws I could find, but the rear lock-up had a little slop. The stainless was solid in all accounts. Finish and roll marks looked good, the trigger was good and the barrel lock up was solid. So I decided to get the stainless. Why did I not get a 38 Super sooner and why is it not more popular. Accurate, hits hard, easy recoil. I know the new Colts headspace off the mouth and the older ones were hit and miss on accuracy. But why don't more people look to this round today. I plan on getting some nicer stocks and I don't plan on changing anything else.
