    G22 for SR1911

    I have been contemplating letting go my G22. It sits on the shelf in the safe and never really sees the light of day. I do carry it occasionally but not frequently. I know I knopw.... glocks are amazing...blah blah blah. Never been a huge fan of the glock ergos so it wouldnt be a life altering loss. I have wanting a 1911 and have really been looking at the SR1911 in particular. I am thinking of finding a SR1911 and then selling the glock to finance most of the purchase.

    Im not sure why i am somewhat hesitant to do so..... anyone have any thoughts? Or have an SR1911 they want to trade for a G22 ?

    Hmmm...G22 can be converted to .357 Sig or to 9mm. With the current ammo situation, I would keep it.

    Why have you not made the deal yet?
    Your letting a basic good weapon go for one of the best deals on the market in a 1911. The Ruger Sr1911 is far more weapon than you are paying for.

    When you really WANT to do something, its pretty easy. With you saying you are reluctant to get rid of it makes me think you really dont want to get rid of it.

    I know one thing, the worst pistol I ever had was a Kahr PM40. I bought it brand new, sent it back to the factory, and maybe they fixed it. I dont know, because I knew I would never trust my life to that pistol. I traded it off for a good kayak, and have always thought I got the best of that trade. That was one easy decision to make.

    If that is what you want to do it then do it. I think a lot would depend on whether or not you own a 1911 already. If so then I don't see any sense to it. If not and you want to own one then you should consider it. It would be really nice if you could save up for the SR1911 and have both.

    I like Glocks and enjoy shooting them so I would not do this but if you do not like the ergos then maybe you should do it.

    They are hard to find in my area, but i have wanted one since they came out. i am a HUGE fan of the SR series pistols, and the 1911 has made me drool since day 1.

    As much as I like Glocks, a Ruger 1911 is something I have wanted for some time now. If you could track one down and get in it right, I might seriously consider it. Currently that would be the ONLY thing I would work a trade with a Glock over.....and that is purely out of just wanting one.

    Yes but 2 different calibers and 2 different platforms. One is a full sized 10mm and one is a subcompact 9mm. My point was if he already had 1 or more 1911 then IMO not much sense in trading a Glock in for gun in a platform he already owns. If he wanted to save up to buy the SR1911 and keep the Glock then it is a different story.

    I have had quite a change in personal preference on SD firearms lately. Used to love 1911's for carry, but the more you learn and read about a true "fighting" pistol, it is hard to go against the polymer wonder guns. But since you don't really want the Glock, and WANT the 1911, you will likely not be satisfied until you do it, so just do it. One thing I can tell you, on armslist, you would have no problem trading a 1911 for a Glock if it turned out you hated the 1911.
    As Benjamin Franklin left the hall in Philadelphia, he was asked, “What kind of government have you given us, Dr. Franklin?” He replied: “A republic, if you can keep it.”

    The Glock is no different than the 1911, it is one platform (the manual of arms is the same) in different sizes. They are no different than the Government Model and the Officers ACP, same platform, different sizes.

    I love my SR1911 Commander and, before my wife confiscated it for her use, my full size SR1911. They are fun to shoot and, while I don't have a lot of 1911 experience, it is accurate (getting more so as I get practice on it). LOL

    It is my opinion that if he already owned a 1911 then there is not sense to trade a Glock for another 1911 instead to try to save for the SR1911. That is my opinion and I did not ask for you to agree with it or accept it but it is just my opinion.
