If the 1911 was almost any other brand, I'd go with the 1911. A Remington R!? Take the S&W.

The winner chose wisely.

Don't have 1911. Easy decision.

Not a problem for me as I could not win if I had all the tickets sold plus a few they didn't sell....never won a door prize, raffle or other give away. I just feel the money is a donation to a worthy cause. But if you win......586....

Sorry you didn't win.

I've never won a firearm or raffle either. Got a winner who sometimes cooks my dinner and likes to be around me- but that is something else.

I am more of a semi-auto guy, but darned that would have been a hard choice.

Of THOSE two, I'd probably have gone with a 586.

I have an equal number of 1911s in .45acp as I do revolvers in .357mag, so it would be a tough call.

Sorry you didn't really have to decide, but glad you have the right attitude: a good cause.

If I was going to keep it, the 586, but if it was to sell, the 1911. I don't understand the appeal of them, but money is money.

I won a sweet rifle last year with the 3rd gun raffle ticket in as many years that I ever purchased. That rifle reinvigorated my interest in firearms, led me to this forum, and it's been a slippery slope ever since.

S&W for sure. Remington had a hand in putting Para out of business when the freedom group purchased them.

If it was an old S&W with forged steel parts, I'd jump on the 586. If it's MIM, I'd go with the 1911.
