Anyone know where to find one of these? What competitive prices are? I have called all my local gun stores to no avail (one said maybe available in 1-2 months), and can't find any online. I am considering the SR1911 for my first 1911.
I think I am just going to have to fight the urge to jump at the gunbroker prices. The one LGS here that said he would be looking for them in about 1-2 months said he had sold one for $650 before. I have been waiting on budsgunshop.com to get them in. They finally popped up with a couple of magazines today. Hopefully that is a sign that the guns are coming in soon.
Though it may just come down to which comes in first, the SR1911, SA GI, or SA Mil-Spec.
Just ordered mine at a LGS as Academy can't even verify when they will order again. I paid $639 plus tax and he states it will be here Wednesday. He is getting it shipped to him from another store they work with. If he comes through I will name the LGS for anyone in Houston to take advantage of. Couple of decent guys running small shop.
Well Crap. Belay my last. I got the call I did not want this morning. He called Davidson's to verify order went through and it did not. I am on same 3-week national back order as the rest of the world.
I did find one in stock locally, but refuse to give that company any business as they are criminally insane. They expect and will likely get the $120.00 above what I am paying out of some poor sucker. Not to mention they are way to willing to be a part of shady gov't traps like Fast-n-Furious.
That all being true. I will say the guys at the LGS I am dealing with were thorough, straight up front, and sticking to the pricing even after me confirming they could be gouging like the jackwagons at the other place.
Woodlands Tactical will be my new home for all firearm purchases. Honestly and Integrity are worth something in my book, especially when accompanied by fair pricing.
I am mulling over the idea of trading my stainless GI and some cash for a new Ruger 1911.
I like my GI and it has been a great pistol, but I really like the Ruger and know it will be a great piece. I have had VERY good luck with all Rugers I have owned and their customer service is fantastic. They gave me a new ejector rod housing for an old 44 mag Vaquero that I bought second hand in a pawn shop....free. Gotta love service like that.
I would NEVER trade my two Colts or the Kimber TLE II....but maybe I can let go of the stainless GI.
