Cost to replace MIM in Colt vs. Springfield?
Can someone please give me a cost estimate of how much it would be to replace the MIM parts in a new Colt 1991 pistol vs. a Springfield Mil Spec pistol? The cost of replacing these parts will be a major factor in my decision of which pistol to purchase. I understand the SA pistol has more MIM, but it is also cheaper to buy initially, while the Colt may cost more but has fewer MIM parts. I don't want to start a debate on pros and cons of MIM, I only want facts in terms of cost to replace these parts in both pistols.
What is a fair price for a new 1991 with blue finish? There is a local shop here that has a 1991 and they want $795. That sounds WAY high. Thanks.
