Springfield Range Officer. I have since added Hogue grips and ordered two additional mags from Springfield. What a gun! Chose this over the Ruger and paid $740 otd. The fit is incredibly tight. no ratttles or any other sounds. A well built gun.

I have been hesitant in the past to jump on the 1911 bandwagon but even after only 2 range trips, I have fallen in love with it. Since the trigger reset is so little, follow up shots stay right on target. So different from my glocks and my 92fs. The fit is ridiculously tight, u hope it loosens up a bit. Field stripping and re-assembly is a big challenge, especially the slide stop which has to fit in front of that little spring. Trying my best not to cause idiot marks by sliding it into place rather than pushing it in behind that spring. My only complaint would be the parkerizes finish not bring very scratch resistant and I hope to remedy that in the future by at least a slide refinish

The more you do it the easier it becomes to reassemble. The slide stop can be a booger, you can in a pinch use a credit card to push in the spring on the plunger tube while sliding in the slide stop. It requires flexible fingers but can help.

1911s do lossen up but it takes awhile to do so. As for the finish, you are right that type of finish can wear but IMO it adds character to the gun :)

Nice choice.

Scratches just show that u use it lol I bought the loaded SS an scratched it the first time I tore it down an was flipping lol but it gunna happen. I found that if u take a small flat head screw driver an push the spring loaded rod in then its way easyer to put the pin in

That's a beaut!! I almost got a 1911, but chose my Sig P220 instead. It always left me wondering what I was missing out on cause everyone I talk to LOVES their 1911's. I still love my P220 though :)
