Is it just me or do SA firearms seem to need a lot of repairs?

Spending time reading about Springfield Armory Inc. firearms (1911s and M1As both) there seems to be quite a few folks having to send their firearms back to Springfield, some more than once to have them repaired or worked on so they work right. I’m not trying to bash Springfield, I’m sure other companies have a few problems too. Just seems like there’s a lot of guns going back.

Anyone else?

a forum member once told me...

When I was looking for a 1911 and I began to ask questions about all the problems with not only Springers but all of 'em. He said your going to hear of all the problems here but the ratio of guns sold and being used to the relatively few gripes about problems is great..in fact, likely thousands to one. I bought a mil-spec SS and have never experienced a single problem ever...with any kind of ammo or magazine period. course I only shoot paper and if your gonna have a problem, it'll happen at the worst possible moment...and I'm an optimist! :D
It's all there...

:scratch: I don't intend to say anything but perhaps the proof is in the pudding...
