I have two Springers, A GI and a Loaded.
So far I have had absolutely no reliability issues with hardball, semi-wadcutter, or hollow points... they eat whatever I feed them and love it.
I am completely satisfied with mine. To tell you the truth, I would rather have a Springfield than a Kimber (no offense to Kimber owners intended)... and also over the Smith, while the SW1911 may be a great gun, I just can't live with the external extractor in what's supposed to be a 1911. I would like to have a Colt one day, I played with a series 80 at my bosses gunsmith shop the other day... the only thing I didn't like about it was the plastic hammer spring housing. Are all Colts made with the plastic now?
