Default I got my first 1911

Went to the gun show today and sold my glock 23 and got lucky to find a guy wanting to sell a brand new Springfield 1911 a1 mill spec stainless so I bought it for 575 new in box never shot. I am feeling pretty good about my purchase since i only had to put a few bucks with the money I got for my glock. I have read some good reviews on this gun but would like to here from some of you on here that have one or shot one. Thanks

I really like the Wilson Combat Elite Tactical mags, Cane also recommends the Trip Research Cobra mags

I am currently using Pachmayr mags, and they are quite good. The others mentioned above will be fine as well. McCormic probably made the mags that came with the gun.
