    If you have to put a compensator on a 9mm, maybe you should buy panties instead of briefs - Ken Hackathorn via Facebook live

    Local lgs got one in for $475. Pretty sure it’s Springfield’s way of trying to take away RIA’s market. I liked what I saw though.

    If Springfield would make these in 38Super as they once did or even 9MM I would get one or both at that price.

    I doubt they cheapened anything, but that's no MilSpec 1911. I was issued MilSpec, and it didn't have no lowered and flared ejection port.
    Good night Chesty...wherever you are.

    It's what SAI calls it.

    Their version of the M1911A1 was the Mil-Spec GI.

    Some years ago, had a MilSpec Springer that was GI right down to the nearly invisible iron sights. It worked just fine, and wasn't expensive. A desire for a G43 when they were first out sent it on its way, but wish I'd kept it.
    What's shown in the links is a different critter.
    No harm in shoving the old one in a GI holster. I think that one was Filipino or Brazilian.
