The gun is SA 1911-A1 on left side of slide. On the right side behind the ejection port is the logo that look like crossed base ball bats. Inside the logo the year is 1974. The serial number is NM135xxx. It also has a dovetailed front. The sights are Heinie tritium, dot over dot style. Kart NM barrel. Ambi safety, FLGR, Arched mainspring housing with flared integrated magazine well, NM bushing. I guess that about covers it. The Blue finish is about 95%. I picked it up in a trade and probably gave to much for it. Can anyone guess what the model is, when it was made and what it's worth? I'd appreciate it.
Thanks. And oh yes, the trigger breaks at 3.2 lbs. No hammer follow, although, if you ease the hammer down, it will hang on the half cock notch.
Thanks again.

Charley,
Sounds like you've got a Springfield that has been modified during it's lifetime. A couple of the parts you mention (Kart barrel, and Heine sights) are not stock features on Springfield pistols.

Thanks oldcolt. Do you have a Ball park guess as to what it's worth. I probably gave more than I should have for it, but I'd like to know where I stand.
Thanks.

Charley,
I couldn't begin to venture a guess on the gun's value. I will tell you that you have some pretty nice add on features though. That Kart barrel is well known as the most accurate barrel for 45 ACP. Sounds like your gun has had a trigger job as well as it is near impossible to get a manufacturer to build a gun with a sub 4 lb trigger. The sights are a nice add-on as well. Sounds like you are well set up. Now, just take it out and shoot the crap out of it. That will tell you it's real value.

I suggest that you contact the Springfield Custom Shop to see if they did the work. If they did then they can tell you quite a bit about the pistols heritage. If they did not do the work, they, or possibly Customer Service, can tell you who the base pistol was sold too, or shipped to. At the very least they can tell you when the frame originally shipped from their facilities.

I hope this helps.
