Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the GI made south of the border - I thought the Mil-Spec was made in the US of A?
Most of the Mil-Spec pistols are made in Brazil, as are all of the WWII GI pistols. ALL Springfield pistols are forged and have some machine work done in Brazil. Brazilian finished pistols include, but are not necessarily limited to, the WWII GI, Mil-Spec and the Loaded models. The Loaded and Mil-Spec pistols made in Brazil have N prefix serial numbers, the ones finished in the US have NM prefix serial numbers. According to the Springfield reps at the 2005 SHOT show. They "should" also say Imbel or Imbel Brazil on the dust cover and have some sort of Brazil marking under the left grip.
