    I have bought 3 guns from the classified section on this site..all sellers were stand up guys and the items described as is..

    There wasn't much negotiating as it was saving me money getting a deal..

    I usually don't do "price is firm ads" and when I see them I usually ignore as they are asking near retail on a used gun with some Accessories I don't want

    I have however done this when I have sold something. Sometimes when I sell something I just want it gone and don't want to deal with a bunch of low ball offers and something taking a while to sell. I will find out what the going rate is and under cut that by 25% or so depending on the item. If you do a "price is firm" and price aggressively the item sales fast ime

    This I have heard over and over again. I liked the feel of the R1 but heard very little good about it. Other than top end 1911's I was pointed to Colt, Rock Island Arsenal (RIA), Springfield, Kimber (not in that order)
    Of course I fell in love with a Sig TACOPS 5"..
    Sig Sauer 1911 FTW. I also have to say that although it isn't a 1911, I am a big fan of the Sig Sauer P220/226/229 Legion SAO, if only a double stack 1911 felt that good in my hand. If I wanted to maximize my 1911 value aside from the Sig, I would possibly look for a clean, used, Dan Wesson Pointman, Razorback, or semi custom 1911's that can be had for under a grand used (requires patience and careful shopping ).
