I carried a 45 in the Army long ago. I have been thinking about adding a newer 1911 version to my small collection. I've looked on the internet at the major brands. Colt military style is over my price range and Rock Island is less than I'm willing to pay. The pistol I really like the looks of is the Springfield GI which looks like is not being made any longer. They still make the Military Spec. version but it looks more modern. What is the best way to find a pistol that's out of production? I go to gun shows every once in a while but it would just be luck to find one there. Any suggestions would be appreciated. As you can tell, I haven't traded in guns very much over the years.
