Alright guys. I'm new to 1911's and apparently made a mistake when I bought my first one last year. I bought a Kimber Grand Raptor II. I haven't had a single problem with it, but the swartz safety doesn't make it a true functioning 1911 according to purists. I like the gun, but am craving something new and more of a "pure" 1911. I've also been hearing nothing but negative things regarding Kimber, so was thinking about ditching it. When I bought it I knew nothing about 1911's and went on what people at the local range recommended. Anyway, on with the questions. I want to sell it to finance another 1911. However, I have no idea what these are going for used. I've seen some new ones on gunbroker but have no idea what to price this at. The gun will be sold with what it comes with when new...all my extra mags I'm going to keep. The gun is in flawless shape and has easily less than 1000 rounds through it. What 1911 would you guys recommend me looking into. I don't want to spend alot of money...but what can I get for around $1500 or so. There was a Springfield 1911 I saw a guy post on here with a 1913 rail that was really nice...but what brands models should I look for? Thanks Here is a pic to somewhat show the condition of the gun.
