Advice sought

Hello - I'm new to the group and would like to float a question for some of you more experience gun owners. A while back, I purchased a Kimber Pro Carry 1911 (classic / series 1). It works well but I'm toying with the idea of getting an upgraded Kimber (like the Custom Crimson or the Pro Carry II).

I paid $450.00 for my Classic Pro Carry and from what I've read in other forums, that was a really good price seeing that it could have sold for over $800.

I don't own any other gun and want to remain in the Kimber family for my gun

1. Was $450.0 in fact a good deal for what I paid?
2. I understand that many owners prefer the classic Pro Carry as opposed to the Pro Carry II because of the firing pin or something like that. So should I just keep the classic because I would have a more valuable gun?
3. If I went the route of trade my classic and also pay $$ what would be a good trade in value?

If this is not the right forum to ask this, I apologize and would ask the moderator to post it in the right place.

Thanks to all.

Welcome aboard, Ronin. Please, from now on, only post a question once on a board.

Ronin, two things...if you like the gun you have now...keep it and use it. If you must 'upgrade' your gun, you don't have to buy a new gun, just read up on the model you're interested in and buy those part and swap them out.
