Railed 1911s are a niche product as most 1911 types do not want a rail - hence they are more costly. Not sure why your buddy would say a Springer has poor build quality as I've never seen or owned one that looked "cheap" at all. This is a Springer Loaded - does it look cheap?

I've had my parkerized loaded for about 4 months now. It has no play in the slide or barrel fit.

Never a problem and more accurate than I am.

I've had my loaded for over two years. last year around 3k rounds the plunger tube came loose. Fedex picked it up and it was back in a week.

The finish on my micro had issues, back in my paws in ten days.
They have the best customer service in the business.

I also own Kimber and S&W, their only fault is their customer service.
My loaded is a bit used now but still functions 100%.

Looks like the Springer vote is thumbs up!

Lots of happy qwners, a good solid shooter.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Thanks Guys, when my gun guy opens up after he completes his inventory, I will have to go see what kind of deal he will make me.

I like my Springfield 1911A1 and it shoots excellent.I did have a little trouble with ball ammo jamming,but a new extractor fixed that.
I sold my S&W 1911 to my best friend after he shot it and wouldn't give it back. It was the best 1911 I have ever had,and I'm planning on getting another one but it will be a Performance Center 1911 this time and my best friend is not getting near it.
