You are correct as I understand it. The new GI "is" essentially what the older MilSpec "was". But somewhere along the way the MilSpecs got the lowered and flared ejection port and the beavertail GS. So...along comes the "new" GI, back to the basics.As far as I know, there is nothing "new" about it. Same model number and naming conventions as mine from years ago. :scratch:
I was planning on moving to Chicago this spring. Luckily things fell through and I'll be staying on Long Island. New York is actually a much better state than Illinois when it comes to 2nd amendment freedoms. Hard to believe as NY is no Florida or Texas (truly progressive states).Now if only I didn't live and work in Cook County,IL I could buy internet ammo in bulk. I'll have to wait and buy while on road trips to 'gun friendlier' areas.
