Hi everyone,

I am considering the Mil-Spec 1911. Does anyone have any information on:

1) Reliability
2) Accuracy out to 25 yds. for defensive and IDPA shooting
3) Conformance to the "standard" 1911--can I use any part for a generic 1911 in it?
4) Quality ambidextrous safeties

Thanks,

Tom

Great reliability. 75 feet away is a long ways.

A Milspec IS the "standard" 1911.

"Quality Ambidextrious Safety" is an oxymoron.

Great reliablity and accuracy. If you do your part it'll shoot 2" groups @ 25 yds.:)

The SA Mil-Spec 1911 was listed for $370 plus tax at a gun show. The price you listed is the retail price.

The Mil-Spec is a good shooter. Plain-jane; everything you need, and nothing you don't. I'd go with Springfield over Rock Island Armory. It's also a good kit gun; if you decide you want an extended safety, or a longer trigger, better sights, etc., you can always swap them out over time. :) It's one of the best starting 1911s I've seen.

The $370 gun is the new WWII "mil-spec". The one in the ad is SA's original Mil-Spec, which costs a bit more. Why??? I dunno!

The MilSpec has a little bit better sights (more visible), lowered and flared ejection port. The WW2 doesn't have any of those.

I like my $375 MilSpec so much, it's my everyday carry piece. 100% reliable with hollow points, reloads and anything else I feed it. I have about 400 rounds through it.

I have used the Ed Brown std tactical safety for years on several of my own guns as well as selling quite a few in our shop .
Their ambi safety is also a top choice .
