Well... new to me anyways.

Picked it up from a friend of a friend that was hurting for cash.

Took it out shooting on Saturday and it shoots like a dream. I've been a "Glock Guy" for soooo long, but I've always wanted a 1911, and after shooting it, all I could think about the Glock, looking down at it was "What was it that I saw in you in the first place?" Don't get me wrong, I still love Glocks, but now that I have a 1911, IT is the new love in my life!

It's the history of the 1911. 100 years, major wars, the stories, etc.

Congrates!

How much did you get it for?

You chose a hell of a 1911 for your very first one. Springfield makes a nice product and the loaded is one I'd like to have. I own and have owned several 1911's, several of them Springfields. I don't have the money to sink into a loaded but I'd love one if I could afford it.

Nice gun.

$500.

When I told the guys on the 4x4 forum I'm on, one guy asked how I slept at night knowing I pretty much stole it from the guy, and I said "with a new 1911 under my pillow!" :supergrin:

A bargain is a bargain no matter what you call it. Nice gun, I'm a converted Glock guy myself. If you're married, for gods sake don't let your wife shoot it. She'll want one too!! This is the voice of experience talking.

very nice pistol! welcome to the darker side

just a shooter

great! I have the same model exactly.

now, go to Cylinder and slide and get their tactical trigger parts and a new "non-lock" back strap and REALLY watch that gun shine.

you'll be hitting 10" pie plates at 50 yards with your eyes closed.

Well... new to me anyways.................shoots like a dream. I've been a "Glock Guy" for soooo long, .... I still love Glocks, but now that I have a 1911, IT is the new love in my life!

Sweet looker!!! Super buy!!!! Congrats!!!!
Here's an opposite view. Started my pistol life with a WWII 1911 Government which rattled me crazy. It still shot good and I never looked backed. But technology has moved forward and purchased my G17 three weeks ago. Its simplicity, quality and reliabilty continue to amaze me. Compared to a government 1911, carrying any Glock is like wearing an extra pair of jockey shorts.
Now my armory has both the old and new world. They're all good. Next financially achievable purchase will be a G22. Wouldn't mind a DW Valor or any Les Baer model but the wallet just is too dry. Enjoy shooting your new puppy and give us your range impressions. Happy shooting!!!!:supergrin:

That's a very nice gun. I esp. like those grips over that one SA puts on there gun currently.

If you're going to use it for a carry gun you may want to replace to items as I have one the guide rod and the other is the factory magazines. The two piece guide rod that come in the SA gun will shoot loose. That not a good thing in a gun fight. I replaced mine with the an Ed Brown recoil plug and guide from Brownells. Second, the only problem I've ever had with a SA is bad factory magazines from SA. I've got Wilson 47-D's in mine.

What do you mean "two piece guide rod"? This one has a full length guide rod in it.

Oh, and thanks to everyone for the compliments!

The factory guide rod that I have in my SA looks like a GI recoil guide with a piece of stainless steel screwed on the end. It takes an odd side allen head wrench. It a poor excuse for a guide rod. I've have it come loose more than once.

If you want a pic I'll send you some email me. I don't know how to post pics on the forum.

Loadeds are excellent guns. And you did indeed steal it. Congratulations.
