I found a SA Loaded Lightweight Champion OD green. The price was 850 plus extras. I want to know if this firearm is worth the money, how the recoil is affected by the lighter weight, and what kind of problems owners on here had? I can bring home a SA G.I. Champion for 500 something, which is the same size but heavier and I may not care about the finish getting marred. So my question is price worth the firearm for everyday carry, or should it be a safe queen which should be treated like a expensive watch? I've got some glocks which are the general go carry, but I'm getting the 1911 bug.
