Im awaiting a Springfield Armory 1911A1 Milspec Parkerized. Besides ammo, what else should I buy to support this handgun? I've heard several mentions of Wilson Combat #47D magazines, are they the beat all end all magazine I have to have? I've also read several things about the Wolff enhanced power action springs, and aftermarket extractors. Are all these necessary? What kind of cleaning tools are recommended? I have several rifles and Otis kits for all of them. Would a seperate kit for this caliber/pistol be something to consider? Thanks in advance.


Edit to fix spelling

What's a good ammo to break the pistol in? It's better to use full-power brass cased ammo for the first 500 rounds or so, right? Winchester White Box up to the task? I've got several years experience, but am new to handguns. Thanks!

Very nice, BT. What kind of grips and mags are those? Thanks.

Looks to me like a hogue grip.

Read about my Mil-Spec upgrades here.

I agree that Wilson 47D mags are number one, but I've also had pretty good luck with the factory Colt 8-rounders from CDNN for $14.99: www.cdnninvestments.com/col19458rdst.html

How complicated is the ILS on the mil-spec? Is it something you do once and forget about?

I've a few of my older colt 8 round mags, I just wish I knew were I (mis)placed them.

I went out and bought a few Wilson 47D mags and I have to agree, they are top of the line. I just wish they didn't cost me $30.00 each.

Mine didn't like the factory mags. Seemed the spot weld on the follower would usually hang up the last round in the mag. Wilson mags make it run like a top. Some folks replace parts off the bat, some replace as needed. The Mil-spec is a great base gun most of us end up modifying anyway, might as well start sooner than later .

My key broke off on mine. Luckily it broke while UN-locking it.

I just bought a GI model, I have always wanted a 1911 type, and thought Springfield Armory was the right price to start off, instead of paying another 400 or so on a Kimber.
