My springer loaded rattles.
 
My springer loaded shoots like butter,but it is rattley with the hammer cocked back. After I cock the hammer back and shake it left and Right quick, the slide to frame rattles like a loose va****. Anyone else does that?

Mine rattles all the time.....but thats because i need a new barrel and bushing. But she will still out shoot (and has) a brand new, high $$$ kimber :D

The Springer's tolerances are not as tight as higher end made 1911s, Wilson, nighthawk, Ed Brown, but they still put lead downrange without any problems and are very reliable.

You got me checking mine and it seems as tight as possible to me. Maybe a very slight "tink" if shook hard enough, but just the very slightest sensation of any movement.

Oh my sa1911 is the most reliable gun I've ever owned. I trust my life to it. And it's an NM series which apparently has a tighter slide to frame, but mine rattles like a snake when I do so.

that is because the springfields are made to milspec standard. it doesnt matter if the slide is loose or not its how well the barrel link and bushing lock the barrel to the slide.

my opinion: tight slides just make a 1911 very sensitive to dirt in the rails. while it feels cool for a slide to be very tight to the frame it doesnt really matter. i wont buy a 1911 that doesnt have a little rattle. my 1911s arent parade ponies they are serious work horses.

Thank you JonM helped me out pretty well!

Does it rattle with a full mag?

Most all 1911's rattle empty. (sans mag)

I've even read of some using fine grinding/lapping compound, or toothpaste on the rails to loosen them up. Never this child, but they say it'll make 'em smooth like glass. :confused:
