WTK: Springfield Champion / Mil Spec 1911A1

Looking to purchase a new 1911A1 for general target shooting and carry. I have either been issued a 1911A1 by Uncle Sam or owned one for over 35 years. I guess I am getting old.

Looking around it seems like my want list is narrowed to either the steel frame Springfield Champion (4 inch barrel) or Mil Spec (5 inch barrel). I like the forged frame/slide and the GI spec items (sights, etc) on the Springfields.

It appears that some of the parts are MIM on the Springfield. Any one have a list of which parts are?

I am leaning towards the Champion due to the shorter barrel for CCW.

I would appreciate feedback from the board experts.

i have yet to come across a definitive list of springfield MIM parts
i wouldn't worry about them though.

if you plan on replacing them, just use that $$ towards a different gun without mim

my 2 cents
