fast delivery from buds and everything was in great shape. Went to the range fired 100 rounds through it and didn’t have any issues. This 1911 fired really smooth not a lot of recoil. Great weapon for the price.

IMO, Springfield has put together a really fine example of a 1911 GI pistol. \r\nFit and finish was as expected and better.\r\nPrice is great, for what this piece is, would highly recommend purchase.

Tremendous service, fast and efficient. The gun, perfect for what I expected. Good quality and good price. I already recommended you to some friends who want to buy on your site.

Good pistol for the price point, and the fit and accuracy of this pistol is great. No loose/shaky parts you might find in similarly priced 1911\\\'s. Have only put 250 rounds through it with various 230gr FMJ ammo (S&B, winchester service, armscor and even a magazine of Tula Steel case) and not a single FTF/FTE. I think the magazine is kind of suspect- feels stiff and really hard to get the 7th round in, but I have a few colt government magazines that are great. The trigger is good, not great, but others have stated this breaks in nicely. Shot from a hand rest and the grouping was superb at 10 yards, this gun is more accurate than I am. The first 100 rounds or so the brass was flying straight backwards over my right shoulder, but this settled down the next 150 rounds. Some brass marks on the ejector port, but nothing I can\\\'t clean up. Very happy with this purchase as my first Springfield made 1911. As others noted, the pistol is much darker in color than what you see in the picture. Basically matte dark gray/black.

I am fairly new to 1911\\\'s but for whatever reason, I became interested and began looking around and spotted this great deal. I wanted a fairly basic example and my intention is to keep it pretty close to original. I am very happy with the gun itself. Everything is in good order; Tight slide to frame fit, bushing to slide fit, barrel to feed ramp position, parkerized finish, sights are perfectly regulated, etc.....So that\\\'s the gun. Now the performance; Again Great! I took it out to the range this morning. I had very limited time so I ran a total of 121 rnds through it. 14 of those reds were Winchester Personal Protection hollow points. It ran flawlessly through all 121 rnds. I was happy to see that the sights are perfectly regulated regarding point of aim relative to point of target impact. IT was dead-on at 30 feet and at 75 feet. I was able to place 14 rnds into a nice ragged hole at 30 feet and maintain a very nice group at 75 feet. I intend to get a basic trigger job. The trigger is a little heavy which is ok but it also has a little creep. That is a relatively inexpensive upgrade but the basics of this gun are outstanding!\r\nGreat shipping service from Bud\\\'s too. Thanks!
