    Kinda beat up, but very solid! I feel like I commited a crime here! Oh, it's missing the left grip panel, and has some dings in the slide from someone being rough with tools trying to tear it down...

    Thing had been living uncared for on a boat for some years, and I cleaned and lubed it. Offered to trade the guy my P89 for the springfield as he said "I like 9's"

    Well, he has a 9 and I have a springfield! WooHoo!

    Oh the mag is that shooting star POS. Big deal. I know what I'm doing payday!

    You, sir, are an amoral thief who has taken advantage of an obviously confused, troubled and ignorant person. The only way you could make amends is by shipping that SA immediatly to me, via my FFL at..... Aww heck, I can't even keep a straight face while I'm typing this. Worth a try, eh? But seriously, good trade, hope it shoots well for you.

    Picked me up an SA 1911 couple weeks back off of Craig's List. Swapped a PC for it. Guy had it for awhile just laying n the original box in the closet. Had only 14 rounds through it and he had decided it was too big so bought something smaller.

    No wear, no dings, no nothing...........





    Thought it was just a great trae myself!!!!!!

    Why I'll do you one better Fred, I wouldn't dream of trading it to you for that tricked out 10/22 without giving you the chance to buy it back for $1500!

    I'll get pics up today. It's a kind of sad looking gun, mistreated and banged up a bit, but nothing a little TLC won't cure!

    sorta almost on topic

    I traded a S&W SW9VE (i picked it up for $225) for this

    (that was my first day owning it..)

    then i turned it into this (lift, tires, weber, lights, dents, sawzall, etc..)



    and now i'm selling the parts (RIP) to get a sharkskin belt and holster for my short 1911
