Today I picked up my 2nd 1911, a Springer GI LW Champ , paid $550 and am extremly happy. I put 200 rnds down range after a quick oiling at the shop with out a single malfunction. I used the stock mag, a Wilson and a kimber. The trigger needs to be replaced with something shorter ( thanks Ron your swill work perfectly) and I will need to change the sights as the GI sights after a while just didn't work to well for me yet the gun still shot pretty much where I wanted. It got better with the higher round count and even my 3 friends who were with me (both brand new shooters) felt good shooting it and it shot tight groups for them. crappy cell phone pick at the range. Here is a better Pic of Both Kids..
