Springfield Mil-Spec Range Report

Hey yall. I recently acquired a Springfield Mil-Spec in .45acp. I managed to get it out today and ran approximately 200 rounds of hard ball, both Wolf and Rem UMC 230gr, without a single failure or malfunction. I am extremely pleased with the accuracy of this handgun.

My first twenty rounds were benched from 7/10/15/25 yards with the UMC 230gr, five rounds at each distance (I accidently put 6 rounds on the 15yd target). My only modifcations thus far have been adding cocobolo double diamond grips and a sheet metal Wilson Combat front grip strap as well as painting to front sight dot orange. The trigger is extremely crisp with about a 1/16th of a inch of take up with about a 5-6 pound pull. It was very easy to shoot this gun accurately. As a side note, no hammer bite, although the inside of my thumb where it rides on the thumb safety is quite sore, but to be expected. The handgun is extremely well-fitted, barrel lockup tight as a bank vault. I should also mention my point of aim was dead center.

Now for the pictures!

I think the SS Mil-Spec is one of the best looking 1911s produced. Here is mine with a Wilson BT grip safety freshly installed. The shows the frame modification before I blended it to match the BT.

I too am a fan of the milspec, I love the full checkered grips over the double diamonds thatís just my preference. Mine has had some adjustments done.

I loved my Mil-Spec so much that when I had a chance I sent it to Bob Miller who fully customized it. Lot's of mill work, including ball cuts, striping on the top of the slide and the sights are fully milled from bar stock. I had made some knives for him so it was all free, including the melonite finish. I love this gun!
