Default Springfield 1911 45acp Gi mil spec, compact

Hey guys, I found one new in box at my local gun shop and I really liked it. I'm wanting any and all input on this gun I'm really interested in it. I'm hoping to be able to buy it in a few weeks and just want you guys thoughts on it. I find this is the best place to get opinions. Thank for any input.

let the bullets do the talking!

That is a great no frills 1911. Feels great when shooting. I would recommend purchasing night sights.

Springfield makes a fine 1911 and I have the Mil-Spec 1911A1. I love it and she performs like a champ all the time. The only problem I have with it is, because I have medium to small hands the arched mainspring housing makes it a little difficult to reach the slide release sometimes. That's just my hands though so other than that I love everything about the pistol.

If you're comfortable with a 3" .45 ACP gun you should be happy with the Springer.

If you have not fired a 3" before and are familiar with the 1911 I need to warn you the compacts do not act like their longer barreled brothers. Not bad, just different requiring some skill embellishment.

Watch your thumb web for hammer bite! The compact GI model sure could use a beavertail grip safety. The short officers grip naturally forces your hand higher into the zone of pain.

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!
