Hi all,
I purchased the above listed SA and I have a dumb question for you. . .

When did SA goto the ramped barrel? I'm thinking it was due to the battering that the aluminum alloy ramp is prone to receive, but I could be mistaken.

Oh yeah, with this FLGR, can I just drop in one my heavier recoil springs without mishap? Or is there a "special" recoil spring that needs to be purchased?

FWIW, I am NOT a fan of FLGRs in the 1911, if there was too be one in it, John Moses would have installed it!

Thanks for the time.

Derek

There are a lot of things about my new Springfield I love that John would have never thought of. Making improvements doesn't take away from a good design.

Ambi safeties, Tritium sights, funneled mag well, and one piece barrels come to mind.

...but what is it? Those #s don't mean a thing to me...Is it a full-size lightweight?

Sure. The safeties, night sights and mag well are external modifications done for the user's desires. Two piece barrels are perceived as inferior so a one piece is used.

I have not seen a set of night sights cause a user to learn a new break down procedure though!
FWIW, I remove the slide 'fore I break it down into its seperate components. Chasing a recoil spring across creation because it slipped out of oiled up fingers is not my idea of Saturday afternoon fun!

Point taken, I almost took out $1500 worth of TV the first time I stripped my 2001 Loaded.

Missed the screen by half and inch, put a nice reminder scratch in my 36" Sony
