Your Springfield was shooting 3 inches low at what distance? You did not mention your shooting experience, or experience with 1911s. Are you sure you are not flinching? If you are not used to shooting a new pistol you will flinch just before the trigger breaks. This is a common issue with new shooters and when switching between pistols that have different trigger pulls. You will tend to flinch when you shoot a pistol with a heavier trigger pull since you are expecting the pistol to fire earlier.

I suggest that you make sure your trigger mechanism is lubricated and shoot your pistol some more. Once you have at least 300 round through it then decide if it needs work.


The best handgun for self defense, is the one you have with you.
