Appears to be of great quality. It looks like a classic from WWII. It's my first 1911 and mostly sits in the safe. I've only fired maybe a hundred rounds through it but so far it's been great.

This is a great entry level 1911. I ordered it on a Sunday and it was at my FFL on Thursday. The pistol comes in a very nice hard plastic case. Inside you get the Pistol, two 7 round magazines, a set of black plastic grips ( gun ships with a nice set of cocbolo grips) a small packet of Lucas gun oil and of course a lock and all the owners information. The Parkerization on this gun is very nice. It is a deep grey color and very uniform.The gun is very easy to field strip. you do not need a bushing wrench the remove the barrel bushing. This 1911 has a polished feed ramp and the barrel is nicely finished as well.It does have the series 70 slide with no firing pin block. The single action trigger is o bit on the heavy side for a 1911 but it does have very little take up and a crisp break. Accuracy is very good. I shot 200 rounds of remington UMC 230 grain ball and 100 rounds of Blazer brass 230 grain ball with no issues at all . Gun seems to be reliable. Overall this is a great 1911 for someone looking to get into one without breaking the bank. I would reccomend the Springfield 1911 A1 milspec all day long. Buds has never let me down their shipping is fast and prices are very competitive. I will continue to give them my business.

I waited to get at least 500 rounds of various ammo before reviewing the Springfield 1911 A1 Mil Spec. Let me say first, it is a great looking gun. The parkerized finish is hardy and tough and the cocobolo grips are sharp and comfortable. The lock-up was very tight (there was no rattle at all) and the trigger was light and smooth, especially for a short GI-style trigger. The first time out, I shot it out of the box just to see how it would do. It seemed to be well-oiled (as many people say to run a 1911 on the wet side until you've broken it in a little) to see how it would do. I had very mixed results on that first day--nothing catastrophic but annoying. I had multiple ftf's nearly every magazine with some of the cheaper ammo. It did not like the Midwest Ammo reloads at all, which didn't surprise me too much and didn't shoot the American Eagle very well either. It shot Armscor without a single failure. I brought it home, cleaned it, and brought it back to the range. The second time I shot Herter Select and a box of Sellier & Bellot, which I think is the same stuff. I had no failures for the first 100 rounds and then 2 failures in the last 50, but one of them was definitely caused by my forward thumb riding a little high and snagging a bit of the slide. So, that was a big improvement. I cleaned and oiled her real good for yesterday's range outing, which got me up over 500 rounds. I also bought a Wilson Combat mag to see if that would improve things too. The 7-shot, Wilson combat mag worked flawlessly and had no problem locking the slide back on the last round. I had read some people had that issue but I, thankfully, did not. I shot more Herter and Armscor to see if I'd get the same results, and two boxes of TulAmmo, just to see if it would feed the steel stuff. TulAmmo is the only stuff I've fired that is as weak as the Midwest Ammo, so I didn't have much hope it would work. Well, I had only one failure in 150 rounds (not the TulAmmo) and it was with one round left in the factory magazine. In conclusion, after breaking it in a bit, this 1911 seems to be quite reliable and will even shoot some of the cheaper, weaker cartridges, which is good for the wallet. Shooting .45acp out of this big, nearly 40oz, full-sized pistol is comfortable and it is quite accurate in that I don't shoot it any worse than I shoot any of my other handguns, relatively speaking. Breakdown is no big deal once you've done it once, and since I got a great Black Friday deal on her, it makes all this even better. If you're looking for a solid, entry level 1911, this is one to look at. And as for Buds, this is my third purchase from them and they have always shipped super quick and the guns have always come in great shape. Already have my fourth order in!

I bought this mil-spec with high hopes. It is supposed to be as close to a WWII GI pistol as you can get without buying the reproduction from Colt for $$$$. The main differences are the larger ejection port, 3-dot sights, stainless steel barrel and bushing and grips. The low price point is due to the MIM parts.

When this pistol arrived and after I shot a few rounds (300) to break it in I noticed the hammer was defective. The two halves of the mold used to make the hammer were misaligned. The misalignment resulted in a very visible seam down the hammer face. Upon closer inspection left half the hammer face is lower than the right. That simple misalignment caused only half of the hammer face to strike the firing pin instead of the full face of the hammer. I sent an email with a photo to Springfield Armory about three weeks ago and haven't heard from them. So I decided to take matters into my own hands.

I replaced the defective hammer with a reproduction Type 2 Colt Model 1911 wide spur hammer. It was very easy to do. Then I replaced the arched MSH with one that has a lanyard loop. I replaced the stainless steel bushing for a blued one and replaced the stock grips with a more period correct checkered walnut stock with the diamond pattern...$72 in all.

Aside from the aforementioned differences it quite a great looking and shooting gun. After making the modifications I am very pleased with the results. There has been an ongoing debate about MIM parts all over the internet. Some diehards out there that swear MIM are just as good as machined parts and others won't have them. Unless you're willing to spend at least $1300 for a 1911 with all machined parts you're going to have to get used to the idea that MIM parts are here to stay.

All I can say is that you inspect each part to see how well its made. Then after shooting a few hundred rounds through it disassemble the firearm and closely inspect each part.

Keep in mind that a real mil spec GI model is supposed to be built to very tough military specifications regarding reliability, durability, fit and finish. Today it might mean that it LOOKS like a GI mil-spec without the toughness that our military demands.

I recommend this 1911A1 without hesitation.

I have always been pleased with Buds, customer service and speedy deliveries, I do wish that the online orders payed by card would be reflected in the discounted price, but I have had no problems with them.

This is a great, dependable 1911. It's Springfield's basic model and doesn't have all the bells and whistles, but does have a few upgrades over a plain GI pistol. The sights are huge and easy to see, the safety has a slightly enlarged pad to enhance comfort, and the grip safety is elongated to prevent hammer bite. This is my fourth Springfield and I've always been satisfied with them. This particular pistol has been completely reliable with the 230gr hollowpoint and 200gr lead wadcutters I've put through it so far. Accuracy seems great so far, I haven't bench rested it yet but I can tell from informal shooting that its certainly accurate enough for any defensive encounter or IDPA match. I did have one minor complaint when I first unboxed the gun, the safety lever was super stiff and hard to deactivate. At this point however, the safety has worn in nicely and become easy to use. Buy one and enjoy, its worth the cash.

Great Handgun, One of the best I have owned. This gun is really smooth to fire, Buds Gun Shop is the place to go.

This pistol shipped on Friday and was ready for pickup at my local FFL dealer on Tuesday. Amazingly fast shipping. Thank you Buds. FedEx 2nd Day delivery service... although there was a weekend in there it still arrived quickly. I did the 90-day layaway plan with no hassle and the Friday it shipped was the SAME DAY I made my final payment on this firearm. So essentially I got "same day shipping" and I am not a Team Buds member yet. Buds has outdone themselves here. I will also add that this is my very first gun purchase using Buds.
The picture on the product page does not do this pistol justice. This isn't a bad thing ... In fact this pistol looks way better in person!
This fit and finish is simply flawless and is very smooth and silky. (I also own the stainless version of this pistol... as nice as it is the stainless version is rough textured in alot of surface areas due to the fact it is bead blasted.) However, this parkerized version is the superior one hands down.
When I inspected this gun upon accepting transfer I was almost teary eyed at the flawless beauty of this piece. This is the closest to a true military (WWII) 1911A1 you can get on the modern gun market today. If you can't find an original WWII-era 1911 this is the pistol to get! This is the same pistol (for the most part) that was carried on the beaches of Normandy, the islands in the Pacific, the Korean Conflict and the jungles of Vietnam. 1911s are still used by MARSOC Marines today. The beauty of this pistol is in it's simplicity. I like the basicness of this model. Also the $608 price cannot be beat! How many cars are still on the road that are 106 years old? VERY few. 1911s have been around 100+ years and are still going strong. I have not fired it yet but after the break-in period I have no doubt this gun will operate very well. What the plastic polymer wonders promise, the 1911 steel warrior has proven... Thank you John Moses Browning.
This firearm comes with a nice storage case, 2 (7 round) magazines, 2 sets of grips, metal locking/storage cable, small packet of gun oil, and owners manual. Well worth the money. This 1911 will be my primary CCW. Buds did an amazing job! Layaway plan was simple, shipping was fast, FFL transfer was quick, price was excellent. Buds gets an A+ from me and I will be doing business with them again in the future. Thanks again and I hope this review helped some of you who are unsure to get this pistol.

I purchased the Springfield Mil-spec as a base gun for a .460 Rowland conversion because it has a lot in a competitively priced package. Stainless steel barrel, snug frame to slide fit, lowered ejection port, and built on a forged frame make the mil-spec a lot of gun for the money. Im very impressed with Springfield Mil-Spec.

This is my first 1911 and my first purchase through buds! I Am very satisfied with buds and was happy when I received my gun in just 2 days. They kept me updated through the whole shipping process which I appreciated because I was really anxious to get this gun. The gun itself feels very high quality and feels great in my hand, i also really like the stock cocobolo grips it comes with. Originally I was going to buy the stainless steel version but ended up going with the parkerized. The parkerization on this gun is nothing short of great quality and I'm happy I ended up choosing it. I have not shot the gun yet but I can not wait to take this beauty to the range! Great buying experience through buds and I will definitely be buying through them again!

    Steven, this 1911 has a \"Series 70\" Firing System. If you want a true GI-style 1911, the Mil-Spec is the 1911 for you. No firing pin safety and no external extractor.

    Marcel, they will work, and I've had good luck using Kimber 8 rd mags in my Springfield 1911. They work as well as any other good quality mag. Chip McCormick makes dependable flush fittting mags as well, as do Checkmate and MecGar, to name a couple. .

    Christopher, this pistol will handle the Underwood ammunition in moderation. It has the proper case support to fire these. Older 1911's without fully supported chambers would be the issue. That said, I would still ask Springfield just for safety/warranty purposes anyway at 1-800-680-6866. Customer service representatives can take your call Monday through Friday 8:30 to 4:30 CST.
