    Question "I am "Stuck, and need a 'Lil help..!"

    I know I'm leavin' myself wide open here, but... Among other things, I build 1911's so I am not much on "Production",
    or "Semi-Custom" type 1911's... But; I have a Blued, NIB, Ed Brown Kobra Carry (4 1/4"), & a NIB, Wilson, SS,
    Professional model (4 1/4") also...

    Which one do I 'jus keep and shoot the crap out of..,
    and which one do I "Sell off & Turn into $$'s for another piece of machinery..?!?"

    (Truth be known; "They're both really quite nice; but I don't shoot the one's I build beyond a reasonable test firing session..!"
    Those really are just TOO expensive to keep 'Just for me..!)

    What would YOU DO..??

    Thanks for some assistance here..!

    E!

    *** I know, I know... "Life is rough & all that..!" *** (LOL..!)

    Wow, what a question. OK, I thought about it. I'd keep the Kobra Karry for my right hand and the Wilson for my left. That's about all I can say man.

    1911

    I would keep the Wilson because I have always wanted one.Plus I bet you could get more $ for the Brown.

    Kobra or Wilson

    If'n it were me, I'd keep the Kobra, and sell the Wilson. The Wilsons are advertised/promoted more, so probably easier to sell. Also, there are a lot more full-size custom guns out there that look and perform like the Wilson, but relatively few comparable to the Kobra. Carry (Karry?) the Kobra; very distinctive look, very high coolness factor.

    Keep the Wilson and sell me the Brown for about 1/2 what it is worth.

    Otherwise, keep the Brown.l

    I wouldn't sell either unless you need the money. You already have two of the best semi-custom 1911's you can buy; it's not costing you anything to keep them.

    They're both excellent guns, but I'm partial to the Ed Browns myself.

    if you just have to sell one,,,,i guess i would pick the one with the most features that i like,,or if you are going to carry it,,,or if it's going to be a safe queen,, or the one you just can't live without,,, and sell the other one,, you got two beauties there,,, i think i would keep them both,,, but that's just me,, i am kinda partial to 1911's ,,,, just my .02 YMMV

    I would hate for my customers to ask what I carried and find out I chose my competitors work over my own. I rather think that would make me choose someone else to build my custom pistol. Maybe you should sell both and build one for yourself.

    I've got to agree with nobodE on this one. You could sure build one hell of a sweet pistol with the funds generated from selling both. Plus then you get the fun of building it

    +1 If I had your talent, I would only shoot the ones you make.
