New Springfield arrived today.

1285 2
My 01' loaded in ss arrived this afternoon from the factory (px9151L). This pistol was a replacement for my first loaded that had a hammer/sear problem (read slamfire thread.) Anyway I grabbed 250 rounds of assorted junk that had been stacking up in my garage and headed for the range. My S.A. feed everything I had without a hitch.From 230grn hardball to Speer Gold dot, it all went down range. Accuracy was excellent, from the bench I was able to shoot a 2'in group of five at 25 yards. Now my question, I know all 01' loaded's come with a loaded chamber indacator as did my first pistol, but my "new" pistol didn't. Weird? does this mean I didn't get the match barrel? The ILS is there, as well as the novak sights and guide rod. Any ideas?

I would not worry that your new pistol does not have the loaded indicator notch cut in the barrel. This is an unnecessary feature that is being provided for marketing only. I would say that the barrel in your new pistol is at least as good as the one in your previous pistol, and is probably a better one that is also installed properly. 2 inches at 25 yards with the ammo describes is very good accuracy. I suggest that you enjoy your new pistol, and tell everyone that will listen how good Springfield service is.

I'm for one glad to here a happy ending to your story. It is too bad that you had to mess around getting the second one, but it looks like they did you right. I just hope mine comes "right" from the store!
