Looks nice, how do you like it? I was thinking of picking up either a GI or a Mil Spec for my next pistol. I don't own a 1911 yet, you can't be taken seriously as a firearms collector until you own a 1911. [:p]

I like it. It's all steel so it's pretty heavy, but it shoots good. I just ordered a couple more 6 round magazines. I bought the gun used and it only had one magazine with it. The only thing I need to add is a beavertail grip safety. Every once in a while this thing bites the web of my hand pretty good.

That looks smaller than my Combat Commander...is it like an Officer's Model?

Very nice! After just getting my PT1911 I've been debating either a basic Rock Island Armory or a Springfield G.I hicap model.

I checked out a Springfield Hi-Cap today and I really didn't like it. The grip on it was HUGE! People really aren't exaggerating when they say they are massively thick. I have pretty big hands and it felt terrible to me. Most of them only have 10-round mags anyways. It's not worth the horrendous comfort for only 2 or 3 more rounds, especially considering how devastating 7 or 8 rounds from a .45 can be.

Springfield calls it a Champion. It has the short (6 round mag) butt like the Officer's Model, but has a 4" barrel. I think the Officer's Model has a 3-1/2" barrel. I got my new stainless magazines from Cheaper than Dirt Wednesday, but haven't had a chance to get it to the range yet.

rman---great looking Springfield. You shoot it well!
Thanks! (But the truth is, that was only at 10 yards.)

I own a Springfield "GI" Champion, 4", Parkerized. It is a great shooting, reliable pistol. However, they are not build to military specs, and are imported from Brazil. It is semi-mil-spec for lack of a better term.

Springfield does have a Mil-Spec model that is true to original design, for more money of course.

That was a 10 year old post. Poster probably deleted pictures, or cancelled/changed their photo hosting site.
