This would be the first time ever that I've sought public advice on a decision, but I have the utmost respect for the members here, and I'm really on the fence.
I have no intention of carrying it on a day to day basis. This is more for fun at the range, and OC walks in the woods. This will be a 'fun gun'. If I were to get it, I may leave it stock, or build it up to suit my needs. I presently don't have a 1911, and just miss it.
I can pick this up at a local store for a little over $400, or do I go for the pre-fab upgrades and drop close to $900 for a 'Loaded' SA 1911? Resale value isn't really a consideration, as I tend to hang on to my guns.
Thanks for your thoughts.
