I say "new" cause it is to me.

I got this Springer at a gun show last weekend. It was a good deal and I was thinking I needed to return a 1911 to my line-up. A quick call yesterday to SA revealed it's history-

Left the factory in May of 1992. It then was their "Loaded" model, even though they did not have that program at that time. It had all the little tid-bits that they offered at that time.

It has not been shot that much. The slide to frame fit is tight with no play. The trigger breaks clean at 3 1/2lbs. The ejection port is lowered and flaired and the mag well has been beveled.



Took it to the range today for a little session. I shot 100 rounds at 30 feet distance, standing. Winchester White Box, 230 grain from Wal-Mart.

No FTF or FTE, flawless. The low flyer was my fault, it's been a while since I had a 1911.

All and all, I'm happy...now if my goody box from Brownell's would arrive with my new rear sight, grips and Wilson mags..

Well..time to clean her...thanks for looking.

Well the goody box arrived-



It's sporting a new set of CMC Rosewood grips, a Yost-Bonitz retro rear sight and 3 new Wilson 7 round mags.
