I'm looking to pick up my first 1911 this week. There is a local store with a Springfield Champion 1911 for $470. Really good finish on it. They also have a Sig 1911 (no rails) with a little wear but nothing major for $600. I'm at a bit of a toss up on which direction to go. Both seem to be solid options for me. I can't find much dirt on either of them using the ole google machine. I plan to carry this occasionally, while my 27 will probably still be my primary carry, and it'll be for home defense otherwise. Let me know your thoughts! Brian Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
