and I have a Compact 45 sitting at another very well know Pistolsmith waiting
it's turn in line.

There are many choices, many great 1911 manufacturers, Springfield best suits my needs/wants!
I am not one of those "buy American" type. I think that IMBEL's products are great, but I do have issues with the heavy markup Springfield puts on their imported products.
