After waiting the required CA 10 days to pick up my new Springfield I got to shoot it. The SA 1911 feels good and shoots right on the point of aim. I used Wilson 8 round magazines loaded with Winchester 230gr FMJ for this test. Three or more guys at the range each shot a magazine full and were pleased. One shooter put the rounds all just about in the same hole at 40 feet. A shooter used his 185gr loads to test it and all were handled well. It was a limited shooting test, about 100 rounds or so but enough to get the feel of the gun. If your looking for a reasonable cost gun the Springfield mentioned here will serve you well. I will go into shooting swc in the future and give you feedback. Good safe shooting all!
