    Used Springfield 1911A1 value?

    Today I came across a "used" Springfield 1911A1 in a Gun & Pawn shop, assuming that the gun is in good condition what do you think it's worth? I've handled it and it seems in very good condition to me? Thanks in advance for any input!

    It really depends on condition, but in general $400-$450 is reasonable for used in excellent shape.The 1911A1 is a base model (mil spec, not the "loaded" option with the better sights,trigger and beavertail)I hope you are experienced with 1911's as every owner seems to fancy themselves 1911 smiths.Add in a Dremel tool and you may have an expensive downrigger weight.Perfect scenario would be to shoot it first.

    I'm picking up one this weekend, a Stainless GI model that the owner claims only has around 200 rounds through it for $475.00. It looks 100% in the photo's but that's exterior only.

    That would depend on how used it is, the gun shop I use back in Ohio regularly sells the GI model in parkerized and stainless for around 500, sometimes like 420 for parkerized.

    Is it a GI model or Mil Spec? Mil Specs are worth more.

    I paid $400 for my excellent-condition used Mil Spec. Love the pistol to death, and probably the best $400 I've spent...
