Default New Springfield 1911-A1 Loaded

Just picked up my new Springfield 1911-A1 Loaded in stainless steel. I'm very pleased. First day out shooting I was grouping under 2". That's good for a novice like myself. I highly suggest it and I only paid $900.

Nice. What range/distance were you getting the groupings at?
"The best gun is the one you'll have on you when you need it the most, the one you know how to use, the one that goes BANG every single time you pull the trigger. Whether that gun cost you $349 or $1,100 it's worth every penny if it saves your life, or the life of someone you love.” -Tim Schmit, CCW Magazine July 2015

2" groups at 15 yards is very respectable.

Congrats. Great gun, I have the same model for over a year and it still out shoots me.

A complete tack driver of a weapon and well worth $900, mine was $1000 out the door. No regreats,
