Is this a good gun? OT

My buddy just brought home a Springfield armory 1911 knock off he's thinking of getting. Is Springfeild Armory a good company? The gun has Brazil stamped on it but otherwise looks pretty nice. Thanks in advance.

It's a good company. (There are plenty of manufacturers that I would not recommend.) Go to the Gunsite webpage and see if it looks similar to the GSP2000.

Good luck, and happy 1911!

Springfield Armory is a very good company, They have quality guns. Brazilian steel has long been one of the best metals to ever be used in firearms. Fabrique National, Taurus, are just a few that are made in Brazil. John Browning was one of the biggest users of the Brazilian steel for firearms, even moved his factory there.

I own a Springfield 1911 "Factory Comp" (compensated) with an Aimpoint 5000 that was tuned by their custom shop. This is my bullseye gun and it performs flawlessly! Being a former gunshop employee I can personally attest to Springfields high quality. I've shot everything from their "Military" plain jane gun to full race high capacity guns and have yet to see one that shoots bad or won't function. Very VERY nice guns.

Excellent company. They also have "loaded" firearms that incorporate some high end custom features for less than one would pay to have them installed later. Check out their web site at http://springfield-armory.com

Re: Is this a good gun? OT

Thanks guys I'll tell him to get it. Then try to trade him some truck junk for it[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]. It's heartbreaking how cheap he's getting it. $175 part and a 45 minute install for a nearly new gun in case with 4 magazines and a leather holster.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] Why can't I find these deals? Oh well, thanks again for the help. I was thinking of Mexican steel in springs which made me nervous about the Brazillian steel, you learn something new everyday. Happy Jeepin'

Springfield is an outstanding company, and make one of the finest weapons known to man, the M1A (yes, I am a little biased).

I am not much into the 1911 sytle handguns, but my friends that are also love the Springfields. Get a model that has the "loaded" coupon, you can get some Mil-Spec grade stuff at decent prices.
