I'm new to 1911s and I found a Springfield Armory 1911 for sale locally. 5 inch barrel and parkerized finish. It was made about 15 years ago and I was just wondering if there are any quality issues I should be aware of during that time period with Springfield Armory.

Thanks again for any help,
CD

I tried out several SA 1911s I purchsed new from 1989-1992 time frame. My experience, and the general opinion on the street was: You either got a good one or a bad one. I got two bad ones so that was my last experience with SA. The ones Ive examined lately have seemed to be much better and I understand their 1911s are of much more uniform quality these days. Back then they imported forgings from Brazil and did the finally machining/assembling in the US. I dont know if they still do this or not.
