Posted this on 1911 Forum, and then it dawned on me that this would be the place to get some opinions. Two Bushmaster shorty's. Dealer is asking the same price for both.
Serial number 43xxx has a 16 in. barrel with a birdcage flash suppressor attached, making the barrel length around 17 inches. Slightly used, looks new, Adventure Line? 30 rd mag. No box. Dealer likes this one the best.
Serial number 47xxx has 10.5? in. barrel with 5.5 inch flash suppressor, making barrel length about an inch shorter than the one above, or right at 16 inches. BM 30 round mag. New in cardboard box.
I like them both. Unfortunately, I can't afford them both. Would appreciate opinions as to which one in general is more desirable, and/or more valuable. Thanks.
