Thanks for the nice comments. It's a great gun to shoot. I have just over 300 rounds of mostly Blazer Brass and some Golden Saber 230 grain JHP, with no malfunctions of any kind.

Yeah, two would be nice, but I really don't want two of any one caliber unless it's something completely different. I have a Ruger SR9, which is 9mm. I'm hope they will come out with a sub compact pocket pistol in 9mm. I also have the Ruger LCP .380, but would prefer a small 9mm for summer carry. I didn't care for the Kel-Tec PF9 and the Kahr PM9 is too expensive for what it is....

That's a beautiful pistol and a great picture. What camera did you use?

I like to have at least two guns using the same caliber. Need to find a revolver to match the Taurus .45 Cowboy's. I really don't want another .38 Special, though.

This is the first Springfield I have seen that I would really really want:smt023

Lovely lovely well build looking gun
Springer makes a good 1911. It's a great way to get your 1911 legs. I have two now and would have another one in a heartbeat.

Here's one of mine


Man this is an old thread! and I remember when it was new! Whew..Where I put that Geritol....hurumph!

That Springer looks nice enough on the outside...but....I had the exact same one long ago and it jammed every 125 rounds with premium FMJ ammo. I let it go.

I won't consider another 1911 unless it's from a higher-end price range. (ie. Nighthawk, Brown etc.) Kimbers, Springers, etc. have a hit or miss ratio, IMHO.

I have the same one. I am not fond of the wood grips so I got a set of Alumagrips. I prefer the cold hard steel look.

I'm having problems with the slide not locking back though. The two 7-rd factory mags it came with will lock the slide consistently. The two factory 8-rd ones I bought from Springfield will not. Neither will the two Chimp McCormick ones I bought.
