    Just put your foot down and tell her you are buying it.

    Of course, I've never been married so.....

    $1K will get you a very nice brand NEW 1911.

    One K???? Hell I got mine from them for $25.00, in 1964.

    I still have it.

    True.
    But these pistols are for those who want a piece of history, who like authentic military weapons.

    For the price I paid to get a 1943 Remington made Springfield Model 1903A3 I could have gotten a Savage or Remington bolt action 30-06 with a scope plus several boxes of ammo.
    But they just wouldn't be the same in my eyes.

    For the price I paid for my 1945 Springfield M1 Garand I could have gotten an AR and a bunch of ammo.
    But, there is absolutely NO comparison between the two.

    The CMP 1911s are definitely collector pieces. They have mostly seen hard use and likely need a overhaul to be reliable as I understand it. For a custom build or daily carry there are better 1911 options. If I had the funds available and was picked, I would buy it and not worry. The value will only go up with time.

    An aquaintance who is a military firearms collector, and I mean good stuff such as a WW2 BAR, an M16A1, an M79 grenade launcher and a Thompson, offered me a unique piece.
    It was a USGI 1911/1911A1.
    It had been rebuilt by some unknown military armorer at some time in the past, and was a 1911 frame with a 1911A1 slide.
    All properly marked, including the wonderful US Government Property.
    I do not remember the contract builder.
    He was asking $1500, and for the shape it was in was an excellent deal. And definately a one-of-a-kind.

    I didn't have the money, sadly.

    I have a Colt Commander series 80 that I inherited 16 years ago from a friends estate,

    along with 25 other guns including some FNFAL'S.

    I carry it quite a bit in cooler weather, but right now I am carrying an S&W 4566TSW,

    4 spare mags, and a S&W #3 hammerless in 32 S&W as backup.

    I do list to one side.

    I do not want to get caught in some left wing demo and be a victim.

    The two handguns I can shoot the best are a 1911 and a S&W mod 66, 4 inch.

    I beat everyone on our PD everytime we shot for qualification for as long as I was on the department.
