Traded into a couple of 1911s today

I had a Mauser 98 Custom with a right hand thumb stock that I inherited. Nice rifle, but I shoot long guns left handed so it was a safe queen.

Traded today for a Ruger SR1911 Commander length and a SA 1911 National Match that's been cerakoted and had a fair amount of custom work done.

I'm happy with the trade and someone will get a lot more use out of that rifle than me!

    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Great trade. I don't blame you, if I was left handed or shot left handed I'd have done that too. And even though I'm not a big hand gun guy, the 1911 is one that catches my interest. I have one SA SS in 45 ACP that I absolutely love. If you don't mind me asking what cartridge was the rifle chambered for?

    A Ruger 1911 was all that was missing in my collection. YOU SUCK! :love:

    Thanks all. I'm already thinking about changing the grips on the SA - maybe an all black look with some VZ grips...

    Looks good. That Springfield looks like an older model: the dustcover and front of the grip portion of the frame are a little more angular than you see in other 1911s.
    I'm just here for snark.

    Sounds like a good trade to me. Ive had my eyes on a new 1911, and the SA is a sure thing. I have Kimber's to Colt's, but there is something about them SA's that are very attractive. Good luck buddy!
