I'm in a tight spot here, so I've decided to come to my trusted fellow AKers for help.
The situation is this; I put my AR up for trade the other day. I've decided I'm an AK guy all the way, and I'm also getting into 1911s, so I asked for those two in trade.
Well, to make a long story short out of the many offers I've gotten so far, three have me really excited and really torn at the same time.
1. A custom 1911 with the following specs:
Colt bbl match
springfield match bushing
custom rosewood grips
wilson hex head grip screws
wilson extended slide stop
wilson extended safety
tuned for reliability(wilson)
comes with a black wilson softcase with silver
eagle(out of production)
it is done in two tone like a cqb
black slide/green lower/ss bushing
2. Get this, Bob Serva, the president and owner of Dan Wesson Firearms emailed me and wants to trade me one of their "Pointman Major" 1911s. I was suprised to say the least.
3. An AK-USA AK-103K as new with lots of mags and stuff.
What to do? I'm having a lot of troubles deciding between the three.
help me out, please!
What kind of AR are you thinking about trading off???
That's the rifle. These three offers are on the table, now which one?
I'm gonna go crazy trying to decide without some help!
Do you know who made the frame on the custom 1911 and who did the custom work? Also, is Bob Serva going to give you the limited lifetime warranty if you decide to trade with him? Moneywise, I think the AK-103K comes out a little ahead of the Pointman.
Yeah, I get the warranty. I'm starting to get my bearings, but any other thoughts would be good.
Making a friend of a CEO in the gun industry can be invaluable.
2 or 3
Anything as heavily customized as 1 makes me wonder what they decided they screwed up and need to dump, or they liked it so much it is heavily used.
I really like the DW 1911 I have (Pointman Guardian Duce), but you might want to ask Bob if he's willing to go with a Patriot instead of a Pointman. Check out their website for the differences.
