    Greetings Smiths! Does anyone know where I can buy an additional Springfield Professional extractor for a 'smith to fit and tune? Kinda urgent! Thank you kindly!

    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...

    Hi folks, even though my range is open and I'm able to practice a couple of times weekly, I'm still going a bit stir crazy. The current dilemma is which grips should my Springfield Professional wear? FWIW, this is my EDC. Blue Maple Burl grips by Lone Rider Custom Grips Box Elder Burl by...

    I've wanted a Springfield Pro for as long as I can remember, and now that I am in a job where I can carry a 1911, I wanted one even more. It just so happens one fell into my lap recently. I purchased this gun for a ridiculously low price considering all the work that was done to it and the fact...

    LE here. Recently went to a Springfield Pro in .45. Running Cobra Mags. 8 rounders in the gun, 10 rounders on the belt. Today, ran about 400-500 rounds. 20% to 30% failure to feed rate. Didn’t matter whether it was 8 or 10, it just just didn’t want to feed. Drove me nuts. Can’t carry this with...

    Evening, Addicts. New member here with a few new members to the 1911 family. I recently knocked a few items off of my 1911 bucket list and snagged a Springfield Professional and full rail TRP. So far, I've taken them both on two outings. The first was mostly for suppressor ready firearms, so...

    Morning! Any thoughts on running the +P 45 through the Springfield Pro? I can’t find anywhere in the manual that says it’s okay to do. Want to avoid excessive wear and tear. It’s my duty (and off duty) carry. Thanks everyone!

    Hi folks, I'm looking for thicker cocobolo grips for my Springfield trp. I am looking for full checkering (non double diamond) pattern. I'm thinking of grips similar to the grips on the pro or a les Baer regular cocobolo grips. I will probably end up calling Springfield custom shop, but...

    For our Springer Pro Owners or folks that have the knowledge.... What I am wondering is replacing the sights on my Springer Pro (Railed). The 3 vial tritium are ok, but I love a contrasting color front post. Something like a Trijicon HDXR Night Sight Set up. The only issue I see is I don't...

    Greetings! Had the opportunity to use a SA Pro light rail recently and found it an ABSOLUTE pleasure to shoot. Not a 1911 user up till now. Have always been a Glockmeister for both on and off duty carry. Strongly considering the SA Pro for LE duty and off duty carry. Few concerns that...

    For years I have lusted for a Springfield Pro, so I finally went for the goal....and achieved it! The thing that really kicked me into gear was seeing several top-tier, drool inducing custom 1911s and Springfield Pros pop up for sale here and a couple other places and just watching other people...

    I've always loved the Springfield Pro. I've got my Ed Brown Special Forces for sale on Gun Broker and AR15.com to help fund the purchase of a new Pro. My Ed Brown has had some work performed by John Harrison and is a great shooter. Hope I won't be disappointed in the Pro, provided I can sell...

    Surely someone has made changes to it, right?
