Springfield PW9108LP GI 5IN 45PK PKG
by Scott B Date Added: Wednesday 04 August, 2010
The Springfield Armory GI.45 is a well-made handgun. The workmanship seems to be consistent with the original sidearm it is intended to duplicate. As a replica of the original GI issue .45, it is no more or less accurate. Like the original, I believe it to be intended for close quarters use. Home protection, camp gun or other utilitarian functions seem to be the bread and butter of this pistol. For the price of just over $ 500.00, it is a good buy for those seeking a powerful gun with a sense of history. That is the one point that rankles me. Although it is a faithful reproduction of the original, it is made in Brazil. I really wanted a .45 that would reflect the history and tradition of the service pistol I knew in my younger days. Right or wrong, a foreign built version of this particular firearm just rubs me the wrong way. Springfield does not indicate the origin of this weapon anywhere on their web site. Only after you purchase and unpack the pistol do you see the stamp on the right side above the trigger. I don’t blame Bud’s for this. In fact, Bud’s has proven to be just about the best place to purchase firearms. The service and customer support is second to none.
