I have a Springfield Micro Compact 1911 that I bought new on March 28, 2003. It has the silver "Armory Kote" finish, slim cocobolo grips and night sights.
It had a couple problems when it was new (it shot low and to the right, and the slide sometimes locked open too soon). I sent it back to Springfield and they fixed the problems.
The gun never liked Winchester White Box ammo. It has fired everything else I've put through it 100% including PMC 230 gr. FMJ, American Eagle 230 gr. FMJ, S&B 230 gr. FMJ, Speer Gold Dot 230 gr. and Remington Golden Saber 230 gr.
I replaced the ambi safety with a standard Colt safety. Everything else is stock.
It has been a great little gun and I wish I could keep it, but I need the money. Sorry, no trades.
