For the Sheriff's Office I work for we have to use our own sidearms. Since I started I am using my only handgun that I own which is a Springfield 1911 Mil-Spec that was modified with a skeleton hammer and trigger, I new S&A beavertail grip safety and new flat MSH topped off with hogue grips. It is pretty new yet and a very nice gun. Problem lies is that I do not have night sights which I desperatly need. I would also like a light rail for the option of a flashlight. So the problem is do I put night sights on for $250 which would mean milling of the slide and refinishing or do I start over and just buy a brand new Kimber or Springfield with all the options already on it.

So does anyone know if Springfield or Kimber offers LE discounts on thier 1911s and how do I have to go about it to get it???

I could buy a brand new Kimber with all the goods and a rail for $850.00 from the local gun dealor which was the best deal he could give me. But the price is still a little high for me since I just started the Deputy job.

Need some opinions on what would be better, I am ultimately leaning towards a new gun becuase I think it would be more reliable in the end coming from the factory all done rather than my 1911 which I had worked on. But I don't know.

If you like your current gun and it works, keep it. Pay to have a good gunsmith put on night sights and a light rail. Ted Yost now offers a light rail that can be retrofitted to your gun, and other 'smiths can do this as well.
