    1911 info

    considering getting a Springfield champion LW 1911 GI model 4" barrel. Anyone have any specific info on this gun? I know a few of ya have similar atleast. Will need to install a Ambi safety too, as I am left handed. How hard is this to install? Thanks all.

    Lightweight Champions are pretty good. The Ambi safety is fairly easy, just be patient with it, and you'll do just fine

    It's an excellent gun and SA has a great service reputation.
    A good local 'smith wouldn't charge much to fit it if you don't have the experience.
