yep... and consider yourself lucky if you learn this lesson on something that's not that big of a deal.

It was okay but not mint. $1750.

Prices vary quite a bit depending on region. Here on the west coast that pistol would sell for $2000 easily. In places where these guns seem to grow on trees $1750 is a more accurate figure.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Yea...

I was in the market for a BAR grade2 or 3 in 308 or 06 for hunting. There usually were a couple grade 1's at a big store 45 mins away. I asked my best friend to take a ride and we would look them all over. He knew what I was looking for and with many used guns at this store, it was wise to start at 2 different ends of the racks so as to cut down on time.

We were almost meeting up in the middle when he grabbed a very nice grade 2 in 08 from the rack AND PROCEEDED TO BUY IT!

I never invited him on a store trip again. I would also never tell anyone where I had a connection for guns I wanted.
