No name or springfield pro

Discussion in '1911 Forums' started by lawdog734, Jul 1, 2010.

  1. I finally got enough money to get a nice semi custom gun. I have never handled either one but I was hoping you guys could help me make up my mind. Either the No Name by Gun Crafter or Springfield Pro. Thanks for your time.

    Tough one. The No Names are a hot ticket lately but I have never heard a bad word about the Springfield Pros either. I would go with the Pro but would be 99% as happy with the No Name. Not much help am I? :)

    I like the Pro, though I've never fondled a NN

    No Name. Hands down. And, in about 12 weeks, I'll show you why. :cool:

    Don't get me wrong. I'm not knocking the Pro AT ALL. I'm just really high on the Gun Crafter hands on quality right now.
     
  9. The gun will be a carry gun for when I am on the bomb squad and certain off duty jobs. If I go with the pro I will be looking for someone who has it in stock. 12 months is a little to long of a wait for me.

    The PRO has a well respected proven track record.

    Nothing against the Pro (it is an awesome pistol), but I am a huge fan of the GC pistols. For those that have never seen or handled one, I can understand the skepticism, but the GC pistols are incredible builds. Alex Zimmerman is a perfectionist and will not allow a pistol out the door that does not meet his high standards. Mine has become my everyday carry pistol over quite a few other 1911's. I like it that much....Either way you go, you cannot lose, though...

    Wow! Tough call...I like them both...A LOT! The SA is outstanding! And from what I am hearing form the good folks on here...the GC is outstanding as well! I would lean towards the SA, only because I have no expereince with dealing with GC...and when I have dealt with SA customer service, and the SA weapons I own...all are top notch! SA is sometimes the "forgotten" in the semi-custom world...they are outstanding! I usually never say this...but it might just come down to personal preference, looks, etc. Couldn't go wrong with either! Okay...I rambled and offered really no help at all!:embarassed:

    I just priced a SA Pro last week. My dealer said $2500( I thought they were closer to $2250?) and his wholesalers currently do not have any. I don't have experience w/either but IMO I'd go with the CG since every other company can't keep from putting rediculous rollmarks on their slides.

    i have never handled a GC NN, but i think it would be pretty tough to be better than a Pro. SA arguably has the best custom shop out there
