my first pistol WILL be a 1911, when i finally turn 2-1 in Oct

which should i get first?

this will be for the range, future CCW(perhaps), maybe IDPA, and overall HD

i was orgionally looking at the SA park loaded, but then i said that i might as well get the operator, but then i said i might as well save some $$$s and get the mil spec....so

i will have ~$750, maybe $800 saved by then

SA parkerized Operator ($779)
SA parkerized (or OD amory kote) loaded w/ night sights ($650)
SA mil-spec ($500)

now i want a spurless hammer, so if i get the SA mil-spec, i'm going to have to install one--is this tough to do myself, or easy if i got insturctions and tools?
also, i would want to take off the back-strap hump--i want a flat mainspring housing, or is that possible?

or just get the loaded and be done with it?
or get the operator now and that will solve all of my 1911 uses? then its the color...parkerized or OD armory kote?

thanks all

loaded> which color/finish--parkerized or the OD armoy kote? looking for the toughest or easier to re-finish when needed....
