I wouldn't give over $600 at best. Now I am not putting the make down as I am big on recommending the Mil-Spec for frist time buyers who want a 1911. Here's how I look at it. I don't care how many bells and whistle it has, it's still a used pistol. For a few dollar more at the gun show I can buy the Mil-Spec and it's new in the box. To me new in the box for a pistol means I got the factory to stand behind it and not some guy who works in a shop and may be gone tomorrow.
