    Springfield 1911A

    Hey Everyone, I have been looking to become the owner of a 1911 eventually. As it turns out, I ran into an old friend who happens to be selling a springfield 1911a.(45) He says it hasn't even had 1000 rds through it. Its probably 5-8 yrs old. It appears to be in excellent condition (exterior) I will be taking it to the range to give it a test. Assuming it works flawlessly, I'm looking for a price that I shouldn't pay more than. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in Advance.

    What model is it?

    Good Buy if the price is right

    I have a Sprigfield 1911-A1 Mil-Spec in SS that I dearly love. Actually one of the best shooting firearms - in my hand anyway. Built well and looks awesome. I have $750.00 in the one below which was purchased NIB about a year ago:

    Great investment for me..

    Ive seen the picture. Looks Black with cocobolo grips. He doesn't know the model, (He's not a enthusiast). I'll see it this week when I test fire it, but I'm guessing it a 1911- A1 Park. Mil Spec

    Stainless Springfield Armory Mil-Spec 1911's go for $650-750 depending where you shop. NIB Parkerized Mil-Specs are
    around $100 less than that. I would go to Guns for Sale - Online Gun Auction - Buy Guns at GunBroker.com and do a search for "Springfield Armory Mil-Spec 1911" and see how much used ones are going for just to get an idea of what his gun is worth. Again, the SS model will be more than
    the parkerized model.

    It really depends on the model, SA has a pretty wide variety.

    Also, keep an eye out for non-stock mods when buying any used 1911. A lot of people think they can tinker on them, and it usually isn't pretty.
