Was wondering if there are any owners of a new production springfield armory G.I 1911A1 on this forum, and what you think of it. I am thinking about trading my glock for one if i can find one for sale around here. the big gun shop about 35min from here doesnt have a springfield, however they have Rock Island armory 5" and the guy said that those 1911's are made on old Colt machinery? sounds like some B.S to me. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
