So I've been looking at buying a new pistol for some time. Recently, Bi-Mart started carrying handguns. They have a Springfield Armory 1911 Mil Spec .45, their base model I believe, for $492. This is my first 1911, and I have been looking specifically at models that are basic or entry models, which I will no doubt upgrade parts over time and with desire. Reviews are pretty positive, and I'm pretty set on it. Does anyone have any input about this choice, keeping mind I'm looking for a base-model to start with, both out of desire to truly customize, and affordability?
