    I’ve been posting about these two separately but wanted to show them together for a change. Two 1911s I’ve been shooting a good bit lately in advance of carrying them (one at a time, of course LOL)...

    Springfield Armory GSP2000 Gunsite Service Pistol on the left, and Ed Brown Government Model on the right. Milt Sparks Summer Special 2 IWB holsters all around.

    Thank you - it shoots really well. I expected that it would, but I’ve found it really hard to stop shooting.

    I put around 500 rounds through it on its first range outing, shot all the .45 ACP I’d brought with me to the range. Took it home, cleaned it, and went back the next day with the intent of only shooting 100 rounds or so, just to “check it out” after its first formal range session and take-down.

    I wound up again emptying my range bag of ammo, another 300 rounds haha!

    I imagine it's a worker for sure, and I'm glad it's being used. Nothing worse than seeing a tool collecting dust!
    Does it have a factory Springfield barrel in it?

    @Bloodhound yes it does.

    And I agree with you - I prefer working guns myself.
