  2. Want To Buy Classifieds
    I know this is a long shot but thought I'd put a feeler out in case anyone has something in the back of their safe gathering dust. I am looking for a single stack 9mm 1911 however being in California that means it has to be C&R, or one of 2 models from Kimber or Springfield. To make things...

    Just picked this Springfield up for a EDC carry build. I've been looking for a Lightweight government to cut the weight down some. I tried commanders and CCOs but always come back to full size pistols. I picked this one up new in box, think it was made in the 90s. I'm going to call Springfield...

    A couple of years ago, one of my best friends decided he had to have my edc 1911, a Springer with some upgrades by my gunsmith. So like an idIot I sold it to him. But I got it back from him today ! It ain't pretty, but it works every time. Not gonna part with it again

    Hi everyone. I am a proud owner of my first 1911, Springfield Armory 1911 mil-spec in stainless. 100% brand new from a legit gun shop. I think its beautiful and can't wait to take it out to the range. However, when I brought it home, after 10 day waiting period (in California), I noticed the...

    Springfield Mil-Spec .45ACP with factory parkerized finish. I bought this pistol a few years ago for a base to build off of. I have since changed direction in what I want to build and have two other builds I’m currently working on. I have shot it a total of 14 rounds to check basic function...
  7. 1911 Gunsmithing
    So...for those following my novice 'smithing attempts on my Springer....I installed a new BTGS....old one was some kind of "duckbill" that was uncomfortable and horribly fit to the frame tangs. I installed a new EGW beavertail grip safety and blended the grip safety and the thumb safeties...

    Ok time to fess up, which one of you bought all the Springfield Professional light rail's in 45? They have sold out everywhere now. Where few weeks ago I could find one easy. Only ones easy to find now are the 9mm ones.

    Good evening from Montana! My youngest son wants to waterfowl hunt over our lab puppy this fall. And since I’m retiring in the spring, my rule is sell one to buy one right now. The only gun I’d part with at the time right now is my TGO3. I have everything that it came with, minus the paperwork...

    Made the mistake of looking at the Springfield IOP prices and saw what a deal these are. While commercial SKU's are almost sold out across the board the same does not apply to IOP SKU's. I have owned several 1911's to most recently include a Springfield TRP. I wish reviews went in depth more...

    Picked up a Springfield Armory Loaded Operator Full Rail recently. Was wondering what the value on these were. Was told it was a trade in from MA Dept. of Corrections. UPC is PX9105L. Lighting isn’t the best in the photos. There is a color difference between frame and slide.

    Rant... Huge fan of the Professional Model and SACS. Legendary customer support? Lately it’s been SERIOUSLY lacking and virtually non-existent. We don’t do this, we don’t do that anymore, and more. And that’s if you can get them to respond. Really sad to see such a great custom shop turn...

    Hello Fellow JMB’ers!! For the safe queen 1911’s, is there any concern with the spring ultimately weakening? If so, what’s been your experience in terms of how long this generally takes? Any rules of thumb? Subjective, I know. Thanks in advance!

    Hey folks, So I live in California, and I purchased my very first 1911. It's a Springfield 1911 Loaded Parkerized in 45 ACP. All I wanted to know was, is there anything I need to be weary of for this model? When I was checking it out before purchase, everything seemed pretty good to me, and...

    So...I acquired a nice used Springfield Trophy Match from a fellow LE...moderate round count...but tight, smooth, ACCURATE, and an all around shooter (oh yeah...and for $500 bucks!). Of course, I had to "tinker" - polished all internals and did a trigger job (3.75# crisp trigger), installed...

    Well....as I posted a week or so ago...I came into a GREAT deal on a used, blued Springfield Armory Trophy Match from the 1990's. A good buddy at my PD (and SRU Teammate) is getting ready to retire, so he sold it to me for a whopping $500! He wanted it to go to someone who would appreciate it...

    I've got a full railed Springfield TRP that I adore and intend to run supressed. 1. Is this a viable option? 2. What manufacturers offer barrels and, bounus: fitment? 3. Is this recommendable in so far as reliability over a bushing and standard barrel? Pic for, well... because: Cheers.

    Hey yall. I recently acquired a Springfield Mil-Spec in .45acp. I managed to get it out today and ran approximately 200 rounds of hard ball, both Wolf and Rem UMC 230gr, without a single failure or malfunction. I am extremely pleased with the accuracy of this handgun. My first twenty rounds...
