I have been offered a Springfield 45 acp 2000 model for $479 NIB with 2 mags, lock, and hard case. I have been considering this pistol and the Glock 30. I am wondering the pros and cons of these two postols, and if the $479 is a good deal. [pistol]

It is a good price, for that pistol. The glock 30 is a phenomenal gun. You ought to try both and see how they feel in your hands, if the glock fits you, I would say go with that.

The Glock is a better combat type gun out of the box but if you take some time and work the bugs out of the 1911 you will end up with a MUCH better gun overall. The pros of the Glock is like I said it's good out of the box. The cons are:looks like crap,really will not last as long(really) and you can't get all the goodies you can for the 1911 The pros of the 1911 are:with work it will be the better gun,last longer,my 1911 would eat more types of ammo that my Glocks would and you can do much more to fit the gun to just the way you like it. cons: you will need to do some stuff to it if you want it to be as good as the Glock. Not any real big money but you will find in time there to ruff out of the box.

The Glock is outstanding when you consider weight, but I am kinda partial to 1911's. For concealed carry go Glock, for everything else 1911.

I sold my glock and am getting a 1911.

That does seem like a nice gun but it is out of my budget. The thing is I probably will not have the time to do to much to the pistol or be firing it to often. I guess I am looking for a good gun out of the box and at an affordable price. I have pretty much spent my time and money on the 2001 LEGP on accessories and ammo. But Thanks for all the input!

what oneshot1kill said. personally i like the glock, but then i am tired of working on 1911's and throwing money at them in order to make them work. just got done with one today for a buddy (1911). what the heck, 4 hours out of my weekend so he can brag up his shooter next weekend. do i sound bitter? no, just tired of having to tweak the old warhorse. flame away lads
