Wow! That sure is a beauty. I'd love to have it. I have a birthday coming up in case anyone is wondering what to get me.

That's great! I'll drive down and pick it up. We'll do lunch.

No, I generally stick a little closer to home. I shot IPSC for years at Arnold and Caseyville - until my knee gave out.

No one bought it, but it is now relisted. $1700 seems like a good deal for a like-new 6" RRA 1911 w/ black T finish. I bet that gun was well over $2000 new. I know there are a lot of long slide fans on this forum.

We are in tough economic times so it's a buyers' market out there. I agree that the gun probably retailed for more than $1,700, but apparently that's not what the public will pay today. This isn't a good time to try and sell anything.

Except AK 47's. I haven't had any problem selling those.
Firearms that might be banned are the hot commodity. I doubt that single stack 1911's will be outlawed.

Although Rock River makes some fine 1911's, it seems like none of 1911's made by the higher ended makers hold their value very well and a 6" gun is probably not going to have as big of a market due to the length.

I see high end 1911's that sell in the $2K range go used for $1300 to 1400 quite a bit. If the seller reduced his price to $1400 it would probably sell a lot quicker.
