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 think that just about any company has some products leave the building in less than perfect condition from time to time. I read the Colt forums a lot and find similar gripes. Customer service at SA and Colt both seem to be highly rated, but unfortunately some customers will never be happy. Some seem to think their $700 gun should have the fit and finish of a $3,000 custom shop.

I think my next 1911 will be a Springer...

With that said, I do find that the 1911 forum has a lot of nice people willing to offer suggestions and advice regardless of their pet brand.
