I would like some advice from the experts on the forum. The wife decided I should get my X-mas present a little early this year. She's afraid that the kool-aid drinkers are going to win (looks like they may) and if they do gun prices will go through the roof. So, she's gonna let me get my present before the election.
Out of all the guns I have, I realized I'm missing a nice 1911, and I need to correct this intolerable condition. I do have a couple requirements for the gun, first it must have a ambi safety (I'm a lefty), second I want it in stainless. Also my price range is $800-900. I've read JDs blog on 1911s (hoping he will chime in here) and with his unknowing help narrowed it down to 2 choices (if anyone has other suggestions please reply).
Springfield Model PI9132LP Loaded Springfield Armory
Smith & Wesson SW1911 Model #108284 Product: Model SW1911 Pistol
Is there anything about these two guns (features, fit & finish, quality) that puts one above the other. I'm kind of leaning towards the Springer (big fan) but thought I'd ask for opinions here before I drop a wad of cash.
To be honest I've always hated all those Boogers vs. Snot posts. Most of them have been posted a million times and if they would take the time to use the search function they would already have their answers. Now I'm one of the guilty ones. Thanks for the replies.
