I am looking to purchase my first 1911. I say my first because I do not know of, nor have heard of anyone who owns merely one
My initial interest is the Springfield Mil-Spec. Bass Pro has one for $719. I have done no research yet other than reading a few reviews on this particular gun.
I am looking for suggestions in as much as your argument for or against this gun in particular. Yes someday I want a Colt 70, but am looking for a good platform to start with to familiarize myself with the 1911.
Any insight would be appreciated.
