    Birthday to myself

    I bought myself a birthday gift today. I haven't been able to get to the range yet, but I simply handled it and I already really like it. Thing's tolerances are top notch. It has no slide wiggle, bushing is perfectly fit, feed ramp is butter, Trigger is clean and crisp with no over travel. it has a bit of slop, but very, very minimal. I had a choice between this one or the Mil Spec, but I grabbed this one for a hundred more and it has many features I had intended on putting on my 1911 anyway, so I'm pretty happy.
    Springfield 1911 Range Officer, .45 ACP, NIB.
