    Springfield sent me the wrong gun

    well the bad news is they sent the wrong gun.
    The milspec i ordered and registered isn't a milspec its a trp.
    a damn fine gun if i might say
    ill post pics
    i ordered it with a trigger n hammer job didn't arrive.
    I got sent the whole package he he he i paid 989 for it and got a 1600dollar gun.
    man am i smiling.
    I shot it at the indoor range omg what a gun - fine as my kimber ever was.
    might have to call in sick so i can run some rounds through it
    ill post pics as soon as i can.
    The gun store was all apologetic and called spring field and they offered to correct the problem
    problem what problem - I said I don't have a problem
    Ill settle for this one they said ok our mistake
    for once Cal law worked in my favor when we sent for it they gave us the serial numbers and we started the paper work.
    so the gun shows up with the correct serial # and its all tricked out.
    Its mine all mine I shouted as I left the store.
    Man what a day Springfield also said they would send me a teeshirt for the inconvenience
    man what a day
    did i say that already

    Sounds almost to good to be true. I also have a few 1911's, and have to agree that the TRP is a fine specimen.

    I am glad to hear you said yes to paying the extra three hundred. It's only right and you still get a great deal.
