Description: Springfield Armory's current Milspec model, circa 2019.  What has changed is the former Parkerized carbon steel construction, as the pistol is now made of stainless steel.  It is a bit odd for a "milspect model," but let's be honest, few of today's milspec or "GI" models are truly very military spec, and Springfield's is no different, with the Colt-style commercial safety lock being one obvious change from milspec, the high sights another, the lowered ejection port yet another, the throating for hollowpoints, etc. etc.  What we really have is a truly excellent commercial 1911 without the less important bells and whistles that today's 1911 users somehow think they can't live without.  Suck it up you nancy boys and girls.  This is a real man's and real woman's 1911.  It's just, er, stainless.  So you can watch your Hallmark movies instead of cleaning your pistol as often.  Uploaded: 11/16/2019 by Mark Freburg
