Question about Springfield Armory?
Went to the local gun shop this weekend just to brouse. One of the guns I looked at was a Springfield 1911 GI. I liked the price and the Springfield name.
I was supprised to see engraved on the bottom of the dust cover Made In Brazil.
I know the XDs are made in Croatia, I have an XD .45. I always thought the 1911s were made in USA by Springfield. Maybe some of their 1911s are but apparently not the GI model.
I guess my question is does Springfield Armory actually manufacture any of their own guns, or do they just contract with outside manufacturers?
