Hello. This is only my third post in here. I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with the Compact LW. I have one and love it. I use it for CCW. It has that "feel", if you know what I mean. I enjoy carrying for its reliability and light weight. Anyway, I thought I would just take some time to brag about my Springfield. Thanks for listening.

Just bought one a few weeks ago. It's the model prior to the current loaded version. It doesn't have the ambi-safety (which is a good thing to me) nor the night sights. The night sights I'll eventually add on, probably Heinie Straight-8s. The gun was a used as new. Box, all papers. Aside from the factory test firing, there were no signs of wear--no marks on the inside of the magwell, magazines were sparkling clean, n tell-tale slide stop marks on the frame, etc. Of course after I got it that all changed. Magwell is all scuffed up now, copper streaking in the barrel, and a small spot where I learned that Hoppes #9 will remove some of the finish from the alloy frame.

Otherwise, it's a great shooter that shoots better than I do. I got it for CCW purposes. I have a Milt Sparks VMII holster on order for it.

I just received my Compact last week, as a replacement for a lemon ultra compact. Took it out last Friday. Shoots to POA, feeds reliably, esthetically pleasing, all in all a great pistol. Overall, I'm very happy with it.
