    Hey fellow addicts!
    Long time gun owner here, but new to the customizing world. Been lurking around here for a couple days and there are tons of good threads and even more great info. So i'll join in!
    I only have one 1911 currently, a Springfield Armory Compact from what I can tell was manufactured in 1993. I bought it barely used in '95. Been a great carry weapon so far but showing some wear... good time to customize :biggrin1:

    Look forward to working thru issues and sharing with you all.

    Check out that short arched mainspring housing. Pretty cool little gun. Thanks for sharing. :thumb:
