    Nice. Seems to have some nice features. REALLY like the medium solid trigger and round hole Commander hammer.

    Not sure about that old Millet-like retro rear sight. Wasn't a fan of it when Millet was in business, haven't changed my opinion since. Seems like a solution in search of a problem.

    At least Springfield didn't have LV's laser signature on the slide. Hate when manufacturers do that.

    Does the mag stick out like that all the time?
    That's a hard no for me, despite the rest of the gun looking very nice. It looks unfinished with that mag showing tho.

    The mags stick out all the time. Those are wilson vickers magazines. Supposedly the most reliable 1911 45ACP magazines made to date. They are expensive, but they work. There are different basepads. But, they still hang out the bottom. I have a few of them they are very good. But I too dont like that they stick out the bottom.
    Ive seen a bit on that vickers model. I think its a pretty decent gun for the money. But I also dont care for the rear sight. Its not a true springfield armory shop custom build. But I think its assembled there. Still a great value.

    Just use different mags. It's not like it only functions with those mags.

    It would look a lot better if it had the Wilson 47DCB mag, black finish with the thin black cast steel base plate. It's an 8 round bag and is almost flush fit.

    The 1911, has been my favorite platform for about 30yrs. now. Most of my 1911's are much more expensive than this 'Springfield' offering.

    I do have a 'Springfield TRP' though, and that gun is built like a vault, totally reliable etc.. It is an outstanding gun for the money!

    I haven't bought any guns of late, (temporary lack of interest). This one does peek my curiosity, so I'm thinking I'll give this 'Springfield Vickers' a whirl, when they become available. If it's anywhere close to the 'TRP', which I believe it will be, it should be another very good 1911 from 'Springfield'. We shall see! ;)

    At that price point, I doubt it’s a Springfield Custom gun. Should be more like TRP build levels.

    Well just use a 7-round flush fitting mag in that case. Not a big deal

    I advise anyone that claims to support the 2A to avoid Springfield, but to each their own... Plenty of nice 1911s out there.

    Yup, I agree. The video says, assembled in 'Custom Shop', but like you said, "at that price point" it's definitely not top tier 'Custom Shop' work.

    That's a pretty nice looking 1911. I'd carry that.

    Springfield, back in 2017, I think it was, made an EGREGIOUS error by backing Illinois gun legislation at the time. Do I believe statements made by Dennis Reese about the why? No I don't!

    Springfield has paid a heavy price, for that COLOSSAL error in judgement! Since that time though,
    they have 'talked the talk and walked the walk' (my version), with regards to 2nd Amendment/
    gun rights issues! Their getting a second chance from me, and from what I've read about them, and
    their actions since that time, my feeling is they deserve it. That being said, I also understand people
    feeling the way you do as well.

    Yes, I understand your point of view as well. My issue is that what they are really sorry for is getting caught. I think it's all business for them. I hate to take the topic away from actual guns but I can't help it. I'm an absolutist and I hold grudges for life. I forgave Ruger after Bill Ruger died and they signalled their current position. Anyway, back to 1911s!

    It would be stamped Springfield Custom if it were and it sure wouldn’t sell for $1500.
