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?

More guns sold means it's more likely to see more reports of problems, even if the overall problem rate is exactly the same as any other manufacturer.

From personal experience, I've had four Springfield products - 1 M1A, 1 M1A Scout, 1 TRP Stainless, and 1 Mil-Spec Operator converted to a TRP Operator. Not a problem with any of them. The Mil-Spec Operator is the only one that's gone to the shop and that's because I wasn't happy with my purchase and wanted them to convert it.
