    Busy Firearms Weekend

    I had a busy firearms weekend, I bought a Springfield TRP Friday and sold a Kimber Compact Stainless ll and a Glock G36 today. I have a feeling that I am going to miss my Kimber, but I have another Glock.

    One thing that I don't like about the Springfield is that it has a ILS, my Kimber didn't. I didn't know this before I bought it until I was reading the manual. But I hear that it is not a issue and I am not going to carry it. Wish they wouldn't put that crap on a pistol or if they did they would have it written in the specs. in red. I got a good deal on it so I might change it out and get a one peace guide rod. I also hate putting the barrel bushing and guide rod spring back in it. My Kimber was a whole lot easier to assemble. I know that it has a EE, but it was 100 percent reliable.

    I editing this post, because the problem was me. I found a video online last night that showed how to reassemble my exact pistol. Now I can assemble it just as fast if not faster than my Kimber. My problem was not putting the barrel bushing in flush, before I tried to depress the recoil spring. What a difference a little help can make.

    My Springfield Loaded has the ILS and I'm having someone put a smith & alexander one piece MSH+mag well. One, it will get rid of the ILS, and two, I plan on using it for IDPA so the mag well will be convenient.

    Great looking Springfield. I own a SA Champ with the ILS . Never used it, never had a problem with it.
