I am interested in buying a Springfield Milspec 1911, but have heard that it might take "awhile" to get one. Anybody know what "awhile" might be? Anybody bought one recently and had to wait for them to come in?

OP: Are you military or LEO?

If either, you can order directly from SA at a generous discount and the wait is usually 2-4 weeks.

Dang. Didn't know about that. SA are nice guns.

Wonder if retired .mil counts or if you gotta be active duty...

I saw one at Discount Gun Mart off Morena a couple days ago. I also think they have one at Southern California Gun but I only glanced at the case pretty quick.

Don't know about retired, I've only taken advantage of it as mil.

SA Mil-spec is $550 to those who qualify.

edit: I'm having a brain fart. Of course, it usually is more expensive if you factor in transfer fees.

I had the same story with my 1911. I wanted the GI and SA told me directly they were behind production for months and maybe longer and not focusing on the GI model so depression kicked in and I was already on a waiting list with my dealer. So I went onto gunsamerica.com and bought it online.
