I did something I shouldn't have today and stopped by the gunshop It just tempts the ole'flesh something terrible. Anyway, I really like the 1911 platform but I'm small and slim so weight and bulk is a real issue for me in a carry weapon. Well they had a Springfield Micro Compact in .40. It's a bi-tone model and it's got to be the best looking weapon (IMO) that I've ever laid eyes on.
I know some of you think that a 1911 under 5" or 4" is asking for trouble but what do you think of this particular weapon? Anyone have it? It's their loaded version so I would expect they've set it up right to handle the challenges of a 1911 in it's size. And, what about .40? Does it create any challenges to run this gun in .40 cal versus .45? I already have a .45 1911 and a 9mm Kahr P9 so I like the idea of a .40.
What do you all think? They're asking $845. for it; is that fair?
