    Ok reading post by DRC767 and Glock2740 and a conversation with Paul earlier has me thinking about the Springfield Custom Shop. I love the stuff that you guys show off here from Springfield but how do they compare to the other semi-customs? Are they in the same price range? Why pick Springfield against EB,WC, etc? Is it just like buying a Baer over a Wilson type thing? Just personal choice? Don't get me wrong I would love to have a Pro or Mini Pro one day. These are just some questions that were going through my head.

    In my opinion, they're as good or better than all four major semi custom shops (Baer, Brown, Nighthawk, and Wilson).

    Tight as a Baer, finished like a Brown, less than a Nighthawk or Wilson.

    Custom Shop guns are probably over 12months. You have to remember that they build a bunch (40+) of Professionals a month as well as guns sent in to the Custom Shop for work.

    they will build it, you just gotta call/email them.

    someone on TOS talked to Dave Williams and Dave said that he can build one for them. on local shop had one earlier this year and i went back a few days later to buy it and it was gone. THis same shop also had Custom Shop XD's on hand which are pretty nice too.

    this is what the shop had, except the one they had used Novak sights.
