I was talking with a friend of mine the other day about the Springfield Armory "Professional" model and we got into a discussion around the FBI contract itself and the different models that were tested before the FBI awarded that contract to Springfield. My recollection was that the field of competition originally included Les Baer, Ed Brown, Springfield Armory and Wilson Combat. If I recall correctly, Les Baer washed out over some reliability issues during the endurance test, Wilson Combat washed out over the accuracy test when using the FBI's 230 grain Golden Sabres, and Ed Brown, although having technically passed the testing, washed out because he couldn't commit to producing the number of 1911s the FBI wanted when they announced they were going to increase their order over what was originally bid out. Am I on target with that recollection? Any 1911 buffs here who remember, or can link, the story of how the testing for that contract went?
