    That's kind of a tough call. I like my XDM, but Springfield 1911s have been harder to find the last couple years. Is this a deal between friends?

    Have to ask, what your looking for? What is it about the 1911 that makes you want to consider getting rid of it for another gun?

    Are you looking for more capacity, cheaper ammo, lower maintenance, or what? Much of a decision like this is about more than just the value of the guns themselves IMO.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Keep the 1911...XDMs grow on trees compared to a nice SA 1911.

    Of course, a person could always opt for having both!

    NO. This doesn't make any gun sense. Buy you an XD but keep the 1911.

    Agreed. Tupperware guns are everywhere. YOUR 1911 will never be yours again. Keep the 1911 and pick up the XDM on the side, my opinion of course.

    Keep the 1911. They are the best and most fun shooting guns around.

    If you trade off the 1911, it will be a lot harder for you to replace it, should you ever want to.

    Save your money and get an XDm

    I have to agree with most of the others. I love my 1911s, though I don't consider them primary defensive weapons at all. Nevertheless, I would never want to get rid of them because I really love shooing them, and Springfield makes the best 1911s I've shot. I have a GI and it's awesome; if I had one of their Loaded models or any other upscale one from them I can't imagine getting rid of it unless it was a lemon or something.

    As said above. Keep the 1911 and treat yourself to a XDm.
