Here are a couple quick pics of the PM7 I just received. I bought it from a gun shop in Poplar Bluff, MO. called Shooter’s Shack. I talked to the guys on the phone there a couple times, they were great guys and awesome to buy from. If any members are ever in that area stop in.

   I got a very nice PM7, in the original box, 2 original mags, with all the paperwork, tool, fired casing, etc. and even a little sticker. Paid $850, and they shipped it for $10, not quite as good as Rwsem did on his, but I am still happy! I would personally like to thank forum member Waldo Pepper for his original post which led me to this Dan.

   When I picked it up from my FFL, I told him I never owned a 1911 before. He said “well most people that get one love them and end up getting more than one”. I thought, oh great, another addiction I’m getting into!

Still a very good deal; congratulations!  Now you need a 10mm and 9mm….poke

Technically, the glass is always full; half liquid, half air....

That is a great price for a PM7, and he’s right, 1911’s can be pretty addictive.

My first 1911 was a Taurus PT1911 which I bought new for a great price and loved shooting and customizing a little. I traded it to get my PM1-S, a great trade up.

My hope and dream is to get a 1911 in .38 Super Auto. I know I’ll never be able to afford a DW, RIA has them available at a good price, and there are Taurus 1911 .38 Supers available in the used market.

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

Oh, it runs great, I shot a half a box thru it this afternoon.

   Steve, I think you read my mind, I would love a 1911 in .38 Super, if I get another one it will be that caliber. A 9mm would be more practical, but the .45 auto and .38 Super are just classic 1911 cartridges I think.

Lonwolf,

 

Glad to see you made the plunge into a 1911 addiction too!  Nice start to the new line too.  Now for that .38Super laugh

She’s a beauty !!!  Nice deal you got also–I figure any DW 1911 under a grand is a bargain anymore.
