    Plus one on the Wilson, go top shelf and do not look back. In all my newer pistols freebore has been an issue. I tend to shoot the lead heavies as opposed to the copper condums......... ( I did not receive financial incentive from Douguy for this plug )

    Tazman--I bought a Springfield Mil-spec ( the one that had a slightly better front and rear sight) a few years back. Never had a bit of trouble with it, shot mainly Lyman 200 gr swc and Saeco 185 swc. As long as there was enough recoil to operate the slide full travel it function flawlessly. Accuracy at 25 yds was in the 2-3" range, it shot to the sights and the trigger wasn't half bad at 4 lbs. IMO you don't need to spend a bunch to get a decent 1911. If you are going to be a serious Bullseye competitor that's another story.
    "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
    - C. S. Lewis
