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?

I own 3 1/2 Springfield 1911's and only had one experience with their repair department. It concerned a WW2 GI with a stiff slide stop. I put a scratch in the finish reassembling the thing and tried to get it refinished under warranty. They said no, and I payed exactly the quoted amount, and received my pistol "as new". I'm such a satisfied customer that I went out and bought a Micro Compact about two weeks later. I'm going to buy more of 'em too!
