    Yes, I did listen to y'all in the poll I posted yesterday about which alloy framed .45 I should get. I called my local shop this morning and asked what they had - and sure enough they just got one in that had my name on it. It's a Springer Loaded Lightweight Champion (PX9149LP), OD Green frame, black slide, and night sights. While I hate buying new, they made me a good deal so I picked it up at lunch time. Shame I won't have time to shoot it for at least 2 weeks...

    Very nice. That's one of the few pistols I've seen that looks good with the OD green.

    And my xd40sc. Since you don't have time to shoot it for a couple of weeks you could send it to me for a break in period and I'll have it back to you just in time for a range trip. :D

    Congrats on the new 1911! :cool:

    Congrats. I remember when I had only 4 1911's. That was some time ago.

    Range report!

    Nice, Dave. Is that three Springers for you now? I know about the XD and the long-slide beauty, and now the new one.....is that it? Is there anything you want to tell us?

    Sounds like he's sprung on the Springers, indeed, even bought one new.

    Yup, 3 Springers and the Caspian/Foster which will host the ,460 kit. I was in the PX today after lunch so I wandered over to the new gun counter. What did I see on the shelf but a beautiful Dan Wesson VBOB - pricey though at $1695. I'm pretty well done for now as I have everything I need and more importantly - everything I want at the moment. (yeah, I know - go ahead and laugh)...

    I love those Dan Wessons. I should have gotten a CBOB when they were $900. :(

    Broke it down and cleaned it last night and made the only change necessary - removed the stock Springer MSH (has the goofy lock) and put in a black anodized aluminum one I had in the parts box. The only beef I have with Springer 1911s is the stock MSH does not use standard mainsprings so they must go...
