Yes.

I Was thinking of the camp perry model, but I don't see too much about it and no one seems to sell it. Same gun but a match barrel and upgraded sights plus a few other enhancements.

Funny you should mention that. I just noticed that myself yesterday. I've now gone from Springfield as #1 on my list to an STI Trojan 5.0. But I will probably have to buy it new. It is next to impossible to find a used STI in my local area.

Agree completely.

This is a competition ready pistol out of the box without the frills that some may see as superfilous and add unnecessary cost to the finished product.

Have one and wouldn't trade it. Shoots great.

I'm a dyed in the wool Springfield guy. Personally, I think they make some of the best 1911's on the market today. I now own a total of no less than 7 of them. A Range Officer among them. Don't hesitate to get it.

If you don't care for Parkerizing, then simply get a "Loaded" Stainless model. They have them in standard brushed Stainless, Blackened Stainless, Long Slide, name it, and they've got a variant of it. Usually with most any type of sights you could possibly desire. I don't understand why people buy Springfield's, then right away start changing things on them? You can see from the pics of just the ones I own, you can get what you want right from the factory, configured most any way you could possibly want it.

I got an offer to but a brand new Springfield mil spec in stainless for $695, how that price for what it is? I know I'd want to swap out the sights for something adjustable but I have t assume that the barrel and trigger are quality.

What say you all?

Sounds like the $695 isn't that good of a price, huh?

Try to talk them down a little. Mine was 640 but it's parked too. Changing the sights may be a little inconvenient. I've been looking, and there aren't as many options available for that style of cut, but changing the sight cut I believe is fairly cheap, and there are some great options for it as is, you just may not be able to find EXACTLY what you want without changing the cut. Many of the most popular sights ARE available for it.

It's not a steal. The guy told me he was giving it away at that price. I don't like when ppl do that. We checked Gunbroker, this morning and you can but them for that price all day, and NO TAX (this guy is an LGS). Plus that # is a stretch for me as well, so I may just pass on it and hold off til I can afford it, I want a 1911 and I want a good one.
