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!

That just wets my appetite to get a Springfield...and that's coming from a Colt and STI fan boy!

*Sigh* it's true. 1911's are like potato chips. You can't stop at one.

Those are nice looking grips. The only thing I find wierd about my springer is the full length two piece guide rod. And it requires a allen key to remove it. Is there a plus to having a full lenght or is just to be difficult?
