Finally got around to taking some decent pics of my pistolas. This is my one and only Springfield so far. I haven't even shot it yet but I am very happy with the fit and finish of this pistol. The slide to frame fit is tight, barrel to bushing fit is tight but the fit of the bushing to slide is slightly loose (not rattling loose but you don't need a bushing wrench to turn it) but hey, it's a MilSpec! I wasn't expecting steel wrench tight!:D . The trigger is around 8-9lbs as expected but I have been thinking of putting in a Cylinder and Slide "Mil Spec" style hammer/sear/disconnector/spring kit and a Casull long match solid trigger. I love the MilSpec look and don't really want to alter the appearance, I already have enough 1911's with all the bells and whistles and want to keep this one simple. What do you guys recommend for mag's? I'm thinking either CMC's or Metalforms with the base pads. I know they don't make them anymore but does anyone have any experience with the Wilson .38 Super mags? I see them pop up on the classified everyonce in awhile. I'd love to see some pics of other "stock" looking MilSpecs. fz4vgq

Didn't the max file size for pics use to be 250k?
sorry about the tiny pic, I don't have a hosting site right now.

Here is a pic of my stainless milspec SA. I put a STI spur hammer, checkered ms housing and grips on it. It is one of my favorite shooters.

I got a box stock Mil_Spec .38 super and I have found that the Metalform mags work just fine in it. So much so that I started a group buy a bit back just to get a better price on some more that I wanted to order. And my Mil_spec came from SA with metalforms so I seen no reason to fix something that was not broken. Is yours running fine with the mag you got with yours?

Here's a pic of my .45 ACP Mil-Spec. Only thing I changed on it was the grips.

Wilson is still the best Mag IMO. Although Wilson doesn't sell them anymore, Brownells does. They have an exclusive agreement with Wilson to sell the super mags. For what its worth I understand Wilson uses CMC mags in competition....go figure. I found this out at the Nats from a close friend of his.

$76 shipped. Any image and full checkering pattern costs extra, and I got it all! :) I think the grips are worth it though, they feel a lot better than the factory grips. Got them at GunGrips.net
