Wow! This gun rocks! It is just plain awesome! I'm a dedicated Springfield Armory guy, and my first gun purchase was an XDM 45, so I'm accustomed to their fine quality. This gun does not dissappoint.
I bought this for myself as a Christmas present to myself, and finally was able to take it to the range last month. It ran perfect. 250 rounds, not one issue. Rapid fire, slow, not one hiccup. Its also really accurate. I was tearing up bulleyes on a target at 15 yards with this thing.
I have a Kimber Ultra Carry(great gun) that I use for conceal carry, but since running this, I have found myself trying to carry this as much as well. I know it runs, plenty of rounds in the mag, and the weight and balance is just so...right. This is a well built firearm, so once again, thank you Springfield Armory for another quality gun.
My fiance was even able to shoot it and handle it with ease. She hates my .45, so we had to buy here a .380 that she could handle and operate. Well she could fully use this gun, load mag, release the slide, and handle the recoil.
Its a very sexy gun too. The two-tone finish looks so good and makes the slide very smooth.
This is my new favorite pistol. Plus 9mm ammo is cheaper than .45 ammo, so another plus. If you are thinking about getting this gun, stop thinking and just buy it. Its a great reliable gun that you can carry with a short mag with 13+1 rounds, and transition to home defense ready with the full-size mag and have 19+1 rounds ready to go.
I love it, and will continue to buy more Springfield Armory products. Also, BUDS's price was right on. Because I paid with bank account transfers, I think that made it take a little longer to process, as it took around a week from final process, shipping, and arriving at my FFL. But honestly, who cares. I can wait extra days to buy a gun for a better price online than pay 100 more for the same gun in a gun shop only to have it that day. I'll save my money every time, as long as BUDS's price is right. Their human customer service is very nice and excellent too.
Long review I know, but this gun deserves to be praised. Great buy, 5 stars, get yourself one!
