WOW! I like it.
Springfield Armory PX9161LP
6 rounds 3.5 inches 800 bucks. What say you?
WOW! I like it.
That's a great price! I think I need to head down to the local shop and get one for 800 before they come to their senses.
I love how those little 3" 1911's look. Some day, some day.
Although I won't use it for a CCW gun. Too many reliability issues.
That's for CC in a tuxedo... Your XD9SC is for CC in everything else...
'Course, I've been packing my XD45 more often...
No fancy suit here, that sucker will get used. Just like my Les Baer. I already have a plastic gun. For winter carry. The Springer is thinner and will be easier to hide in the summer. Les Baer is a range gun, but I would carry that too if I had too. They are tools.
Buy it! Pump 500 through it of various brands, and put up a range report! I'd love to know how good they are... I'm already a Springfield fan... Who knows?
I've read that the 45ACP does not do well in a 3 inch gun. Are the newer rounds doing better? Will a Gold Dot or DPX fully expand coming from only 3 inches of barrel?
Anyone got a reference on good results?
Beautiful 1911, that's for sure...
what's this reliability issue in a 3" 45acp
thought they had that figured out
The reviews I have seen are overwhelmingy positive not just on this one but many other 3 inch as well.
P.S. I am going to get one put on layaway at the local shop. It will be awhile for a review.
I'm not so much concerned with the reliability of the pistol, but the JHPs. Most 45ACP loads were developed around the 5 inch barrel. Reducing that by 2/5 must have a pretty decent impact on velocity. What JHPs maintain enough velocity or mushroom reliably from a 3 inch barrel?
