    A friend of mine needed room in his safe, and was trying to trade in his 1911 to Gander Mountain on a new purchase. They offered him way too low, so he decided to just sell it to me.

    I picked up a Colt MK IV Series 80 1911 with the 2 original colt magazines, and original grips
    Extended magazine release
    extended thumb safety
    Crimson Trace Burlwood Grips
    3 wilson combat magazines
    100 rounds of federal fmj
    50 rounds of winchester ranger hollow points
    a galco IWB horsehide holster
    and a pistol safe

    all for 550.

    Just shot it this morning, I am in love.

    I like it so far, I have it sighted at roughly 15-20 feet.

    quick targeting, and out of the way.

    I like it.

    This must be the day for great 1911 deals. I just got off the phone with a guy going to sell me a Kimber custom target 2 for $650 in the morning.

    Wow!! Nice!! I'd take that deal all day long!

    Another shcking point - Gander was offering LESS than this? Shameful on their part.
