A friend of mine needed room in his safe, and was trying to trade in his 1911 to Gander Mountain on a new purchase. They offered him way too low, so he decided to just sell it to me.

I picked up a Colt MK IV Series 80 1911 with the 2 original colt magazines, and original grips
Extended magazine release
extended thumb safety
Crimson Trace Burlwood Grips
3 wilson combat magazines
100 rounds of federal fmj
50 rounds of winchester ranger hollow points
a galco IWB horsehide holster
and a pistol safe

all for 550.

Just shot it this morning, I am in love.

I like it so far, I have it sighted at roughly 15-20 feet.

quick targeting, and out of the way.

I like it.

This must be the day for great 1911 deals. I just got off the phone with a guy going to sell me a Kimber custom target 2 for $650 in the morning.

Another shcking point - Gander was offering LESS than this? Shameful on their part.

Nice and a great deal I like them stock not with all the mods. You need to shoot at a minimum of 15-20 yards to see what these guns can do, and fifty yards is where the great ones show versus the good ones!

They would probably sticker it for $1000 and take $900 if offered.
