    The aim of this thread is to find one or two inexpensive practice guns. I've got enough pretty, higher end, beauty queen 1911's. I am looking for inexpensive, beat down, abused or neglected guns to continue my hobby. I have a mill and I am not afraid to use it. :o.o:

    I am looking for ANY Springfield/Colt to continue practicing my gunsmithing hobby. The only exception would be officer/compact models. So Champions, Commanders, Gov't, long rails, full rails, no rails, alloy frame any 4" gun or bigger. Not interested in other brands at this time.

    If I had a choice, I'd be all over a 1911-1A Mil Spec... even if it was left in your tackle box for a year and needs total rehab (with a price that reflects the condition :eek: )

    No beauty queens need to apply, looking for a good deal on a beater gun. Complete or not. Previously hacked or not. Functioning or not.

    I have lots of gun related trade fodder if you'd prefer. Been into high end AR's for a decade, 1911 parts, and I do Glock stippling/chopping work. I've been making custom kydex rigs for over 10 years too. Lets make a deal!

    Anyone who helps me procure a beater to build up, will be privy to all "in progress" pics and updates as the build up happens... as well as having first dibs if they'd like to buy it back when done (if I decide to sell it, assuming it is safe and functional).

    So who's got that ugly duckling tucked back deep in the safe!?

    Thanks in advance-

    Honestly GB has GI springers, Milspecs often in the $500 ball park.. or less. Not sure if there are any on there currently but in this forum, anyone that has one of these is probably aiming to do the same thing your wanting to do with it lol GL though, never know...

    Thanks I know about gunbroker and other sites. There’s often advantage for both buyer and seller to skip the middle man and strike a deal privately.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have Range officer 9mm I could part with for $475 shipped. Round count under 4k. added a fiber optic front and it currently has an S&A magwell on it if interested. It's used but far from beat.
    thanks!
