So I recently bought a Springfield Compact 45.
Awesome pistol, but when I picked it up from the shop, it was packed in a Glock clamshell case.
Is that not a 1911 sacrilege?

I always use a CZ box when I send guns out got work. They are the smallest ones I have . Makes finding a shipping box easy.

That's camoflauge man. Noone is gonna steal a crappy old Glock.




:laughing:

Classic.. hahahahaha..

I had a Kimber once (I know, don't say it) and it shot low and left. I kept it in the safe of course (fool) and ever since then.... everything I buy shoots low and left.. I'm sure it's a virus of some sort.. Ron

I used a Glock tool (3/32" punch) to nudge out my extractor the other day on the 1911.

That Melonite is good stuff. The extractor came out just fine. The gun is okay; the tool is dented. :lol:

1911 wins.

I think I would have asked the shop guy what the heck he was thinking since Springers always come in a Springfield case.
Seems strange to me.

It has the plastic pox sometimes referred to as "Glock Pox". You best drop it off here to avoid infecting your other, fancy 1911s.

Beings this thread is from 2011, I wonder if the OP can tell us if there were any lasting after effects.
