Who has the best price on the GI model? That is the A1 correct?

Thanks

G.I. about $500. Mil-Spec about $600. If you can find one. That's a big IF. source of data = SGC. They're not showing any inventory, although that changes daily.

Lots of both found here in local gun shows.

Chinook3: get a copy of Gun Digest & start calling dealers who have ads for Springfields, even if the ad is not the model you want. They may have one come in after the ad has been already submitted, for example.

Yes, the GI model is the 1911A1 version. If I may, I would urge you to go instead with the Mil-Spec model due to its much, much better sights (among other things). If you're wanting a pure WW2 model or will build the gun up, then disregard.

Heed!

If you're not set on a repro, then the MilSpec is one of the best values out there.

The Mil-Spec is creeping up there. I am seeing them VERY close to $700 and with the price of a GI hovering around $500, they aren't the deal they used to be.

Keep shopping. They're found at a lot less than that, IMO.

Indeed.

A quick search of GunBroker reveals a NIB SA Mil-Spec for $489 + $30 S&H. Assume a $25 transfer, and that's a grand total of $544 OTD.

I have one almost identical to that one. It is a fantastic pistol.

Got a Mil-Spec from floridagunexchange.com (too lazy to make it hot) a few months ago. $539 + $20 shipping + $25 FFL fee.

How does one go about getting this discount? I am a college senior up in Ohio, do I qualify?

I bought mine (mil spec) from a dealer on gunsamerica.com NIB, usually you can find someone thats selling one on gunbroker or gunsamerica when most other places inventory is out.

DFW gun shows have been very bad for my bank account.

To the guy talking about a student discount, and all the people asking for him to explain:

I asked Springfield about this and was told that they offer discounts to gun shop employees and gunsmithing students, that is all. The service rep that emailed me did not specify how much of a discount, what gun shops, which gunsmithing schools, etc., but it only applies if you are an employee at a gun shop or a student at a gunsmithing school.

Springfield also gives a decent discount to LEO's. Send them an email, they'll send you a price list.
