I have had my SA 1911a1 since the mid 1990s. I have shot untold tens of thousands of rounds through it. I have never had one minutes problem with this pistol. The only change I made to it, over the years, is changing the grip panels. You have bought a fine firearm at a good price. Congratulations!

Dude, you are so busted

CJester,
Poor folk have crack & meth. Gun folk have 1911s. I have 3, & I'm nowhere near done.
Springfield DOES make some excellent 1911s. Enjoy yours.

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!
