    Sweet! I have the GI 1911 A-1 and mine only came with one mag.
    And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

    There's a promo. right now with Springfield where they are throwing in a couple of extras "Free of charge". I had someone else tell me that, so I went to the website.. I'm definitely happy though. I got this voucher also to get mag's. for $9 each also. I jumped on that with the quickness!!

    I also like the simplicity, and the fact that it doesn't have ambidextrous "everything" already on the gun. I do plan on swapping the hammer (Delta) , and the beaver tail to match though, and I'll be done.

    I love mine. They have been around for almost 100 years and have fought in many wars, no doubt they are reliable. They look pretty cool, too.

    Thumbs up

    You did well on picking that Springer! Mine is a 1990 vintage that has been utterly reliable. I did add a Ed Brown Ambi safety (good for IPCS and if you do take a hit to your left arm/shoulder) , Wilson drop in safety, hammer and trigger. Gun eats everything I feed it and has been a constant companion for 18 years. Fot the money best 1911 out there. Congrats!

    Here is my old battle wagon with over 20K rds. Buy ya some Wilson
    Shock Buffs to keep the frame intact,and don't add a full length guide rod system. May yours be as good as a companion as mine has.

    I can also carry and conceal this as easily as a K frame S&W. Mine rides in a HBE Leatherworks DC Special. Great combo IMO

    Good job on pickin' that up! I've got a parkerized "Loaded" model... it's been a wonderful gun - and Springfield was even nice enough to honor their lifetime warranty even though I'm not the original owner.

    I didn't know they were packaging them with mag holders now... is it worth much or is it about as good as the holster (fine for the range, crappy for concealment)?

    I would agree that it is a good range holster. I tried the thing but it will not work for me. I bought a deep conceal. IWB holster, and I will be getting that soon.. Thank you for the input..
