Looks like a great price on a 1911 but please find an additional source of feedback outside of Bud's before making a purchase decision. For example Bud's "reviews" make the S&W Sigma SW9VE look like an amazing firearm for the money - but in my opinion it isn't.
These are great guns, but plan to possibly spend ~$50 right out the gate, maybe more. The factory grips have really hard corners, sand them down or replace them. If you're going to shoot JHP you may need the feed ramp polished depending on how your gun performs.

Awesome shooter. As stated above, the grips need replacing, throw some black rubber Hogue grips on it and it looks and feels great. This one has shot all brands with no issue even without polishing the ramp. The parkerized finish probably wont hold up well if you dont baby it, mine already has a couple small pits. For an inexpensive gun, the slide is really tight. The safety and mag release will require some breaking in as they are tight too. On the other hand, the trigger could use a little work to remove the play and a beavertail would make it more comfortable for the range. If you go with the lower price cash option, expect to wait a month for it to arrive.
