Just put a MilSpec on lay-away

I figured, what the heck, now's the time to do it while I've got overtime at work to pay for it.

I haven't had a .45 in my hands since I was repairing them in the army. Now I'll get to keep the one that crosses my palm after I pay it off.

Congrats on yor new purchase. If you want to see a Springfield A. milspec in tricked out form, check out Vickers' modified mil spec in the latest issue of American Handgunner. What a gun!

Enjoy your springfield

Congrats on the mil-spec...I, for one, want to know what YOU think about it?!


Let us hear a "Range Report"....I'm sure it'll be good, but I definately am looking forward to your "compare and contrast" being very insightful!

Once I get it, I sure will make a Range Report. Myself, I wanted the closest to military issue I could afford. I will also be double-checking those parts to see how close the quality comes from army-issue repair parts that I remember.

I have a Tokarev in 9mm. A Tokarev being an obvious copy of the 1911 with a few differences, I will say this: The Tokarev is extremely accurate, very rugged, highly reliable, and I have never had a jam. I am going to expect this from my MilSpec. Accuracy is dependant on some variables that I will allow for with time, but I expect reliability and ruggedness as givens.

Thanks for the replies and I will keep you posted.

I've had one of these pistols for about three weeks now and so far so good. It's my first 1911 so I have nothing to compare it to. I do have more than a few other pistols and this one is pretty well put together. Great looking parkerized finish. The sights needed a tiny bit of paint in each of the three provided dot holes. The trigger pull measured out at 5.25 pounds. Not too bad a pull either for a new pistol.

I'm going to have night sighs installed and some sharper cut grips put on it.
