Congrats. Springfield makes a quality 1911.

Very nice gun. I love the OD contrasting the slide. Again very nice.

Now where's the range report.

Range report-

Gun shot very well! I put a box and a half through it with no issues at all. I had some old Blazer steel cases I shot up and a half box of some Winchester. It shoots a little to the left or it's just me getting used to the gun. Not bad foe he first time out (I thought).

One thing that I noticed after cleaning it when I got home- The previous owner must have done a little dremmel work on the right hand side of the safety. (See picture). I saw it before but thought maybe it was a custom ambi or something. After cleaning it, the paint came off and it's bare steel on the end. I can't have that! Where's the best place to buy a replacement ambi-safety for it?
