Brought my new Champion home last night.Haven't had a Springfield around for awhile. It is a 2000 model and I got a great deal on it. My dealer had three so I picked the one I thought had the best trigger and finish. This will be my regular carry weapon as soon as I check out its reliability. Reading the manual, I noticed that you have to hold the recoil spring in place when stripping or reassempling the slide and frame. Anyone have any other tricks or hints particular to this pistol?
