Default Found One of My "Grail Guns"

Found a Springfield Mil Spec Stainless online for 699.00 and scooped it up as fast as i could!!! WOO HOO!!! Can't believe i actually found one... Got the last one... and he told me as soon as he got off the phone with me to take it out of the display case... a woman said, "hey where are you going with that, i want it!" I was literally a butt hair away from not having it. My black VZ "Operator" grips already came in the mail and are waiting for the gun... i'll post pics on this thread when i get the chance. Any testimonials about the gun?

You'll be happy with your new "Springer" Slightly.

Keep us in the loop with some gratuitous eye candy and a range report.

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!
