This is an outstanding pistol. Fit and finish are excellent. Shoots well and is getting better the more rounds I put through it.

Beautiful gun. I looked at several 1911 models made by other gun manufacturers, held them, racked the slide, checked out the trigger, mag release, & barrel fit. Springfield did a great job on this pistol. And no one could come close to Buds price. I have shot it only about 50 rounds, no problems. I can't say much about accuracy as I haven't tried that hard with this pistol. It did need cleaning. Came with 2 mags & mag holder, plastic holster( its ok) cleaning brush, & a nice quality case, but is a bit large.

The Springfield 45 auto is a beast. The gun is cosmetically perfect, no scratches no dings, just perfect. As far as the operation, with only 25 rds down the tube in one session, I have no complaints. There is one issue that I hesitate to discuss. The ILS, Integral Locking System cannot be activated, period. There were 2 ILS keys included in the packaging and I tried as hard as I possibly could to activate the ILS and I could not get it to work. I contacted Springfield to discuss, just to make sure that there wasn't some trick that I was missing, and there isn't. I don't foresee me ever actually engaging the ILS system during normal usage, but I might. The system has a cost to it and I paid for it and it should work. Springfield suggested that I send it bac to them for repair but I opted not to at this time. What concerns me is that the ILS is even on the pistol but more importantly that it left the factory without being tested and is obviously defective.

I purchased this gun a couple of months ago and am just getting around to reviewing it. First of all, let me say that I have been shooting 1911 style pistols for 40 years, and used to carry one every day. I'm old now so they are a pretty big hunk of steel to carry now I pretty much use them for shooting enjoyment. This gun fills the bill perfectly. I've owned a couple of dozen 1911's over the years from Colt, Springfield, Kimber, and other companies, and this is easily one of the nicest pistols I own. It's fit and finish are in the same league as my new Colt Commander in stainless that I got at about the same time. To be honest, you will have to go to a custom gun to do much better.This package represents a lot of value for $800.00, and it is one of the prettiest guns I own as well. That might sound silly to comment on, but part of the enjoyment of nice firearms is looking at them and just handling them. This gun does not disappoint, and my friends who see it all comment on its good looks. But how does it shoot? Very well. Thus far, after about 300 rounds of good factory ball ammo to break it in, I've had no failures to feed, fire, or eject, using either the two supplied factory 7 round magazines that came with the package, or my Wilson 47D 8 rounders. One thing I have learned about 1911's is, if you want them to work, use good magazines. This is an accurate pistol as well, and just using factory ball ammo, I am shooting 2.5 inch offhand groups at 25 yards. I'm an old match shooter, and can tell this gun "wants" to do even better with a match grade load. For a production pistol with no work done to it, this is impressive. The trigger, right out of the box, is excellent. For a general purpose shooter, it is good to go as is from the box. much better than the one that came on my Colt. The gun is very tightly fitted, and does have a few sharp edges on it that I would round off IF I were using this as a fighting gun, but I am not. This is about the only difference I see in workmanship between this gun and my new stainless Colt. The adjustable sights are nice and convenient for a range gun, but the corners on the rear sight will cut you up a bit if you don't watch where you put your hands. I just broke the edges of the outside of the rear sight slightly with a file and then blackened the steel again to address this. If you are looking for a carry gun, I'd probably go with one of the Springfields with fixed sights instead. So the bottom line is that this gun should serve you well if you want to use it as an introduction to competitive shooting, use it as your primary range .45, and even as a home defense gun. You could use it as a carry gun as well, but it is a lot of steel to haul around daily. This is not a cheap pistol, and there are many lower priced 1911's you could buy, but you won't need to spend any additional money on this to get what you want. Consider it an investment in your shooting. Of all the 1911's I have owned, this is one of my favorites. A tip of the hat to Buds for great customer service and an easy transaction.

Just received my Springfield 1911 loaded target today. Beautiful gun with very good slide to frame fit. Really like the polished flats ad matte rounds look on stainless steel. The gun did come somewhat dirty with some kind of semi sticky black material all over it. Hard to describe exactly what it was. It cleaned up very nicely though, so no major problem there. Comes in a huge plastic case, really too big of a case and not very user friendly, with two 7 round magazines, plastic holster and plastic dual mag pouch. Why not 8 round magazines Springfield? The sights are black target, adjustable, no white dots, which I knew going in. Has 2 piece full length guide rod. Have not shot the gun yet but expect it to be just fine when I do.
