View Full Version : Question about Springfield Mil Spec

01-02-2011, 2:38 PM
I was at Turner's today looking for a Springfield Mil Spec. When I asked if they could order me one the guy helping me went to look up the info and came back saying the model number for a parkerized one is not on the list

After looking up the model number I came up with Part Number:PB9108LP. There is a Part Number:PB9108 and Part Number:PB9108L but no Part Number:PB9108LP. Does this mean it cannot be sent here or that the P simply stands for Parkerized?

Thanks for the answers in advance

Tell the store guy the gun IS on the list. It's the same gun. The, "P" stands for, "package" as ALL Springfields now include the holster and mag pouch, and they all carry the package in their designation. Tell him to verify it with the state if he's not sure. That's the Ca. legally obtained pistol on the list.

I am looking for the same gun but I'm in San Jose. It seems like no one can order a parkerized version. I got a line about how Springfield allocates them so you just have to wait and see if a shop gets one.

This is the information from the CA gun roster.

PB9108 / Carbon Steel Pistol 5" .45 ACP exp 2/8/2011

This is the model number from Springfield's website.

PB9108LP I'm pretty sure its the same gun.
