Springfield Armory GI 1911 A1?

Wanted an 1911 like the type I carried in military... The Springfield Armory GI 1911 is almost an exact duplicate.

Does anyone like how they shoot?

It only comes with one clip..I would like to get another.. Probably could order one right from Springfield Armory?

Found a place that sales some nice miltary holster too.
Type you wear on the belt and one also under the shoulder.
Comes in brown and black and right hand or left hand.. Brown has U. S. insignia the black has USMC on it.

Springfield makes some nice pieces, I'm sure it will be great. You can get 1911 magazines anywhere shooting supplies are sold. I use Chip McCormicks.

Wherever somebody’s strugglin’ to be free,
Look in their eyes ma you’ll see me.

The GI can accept two magazine..the 7 shot magazine or the 10 shot magazine.. Don't like the 10 since it sticks out the bottom but will work..

I was in the USCG...Our 1911 blued barrels were not so blue anymore...However they performed well. Now I wish I had one of those old ugly ones we used in the USCG?

Re: Springfield Armory GI 1911 A1?

the springfield armory GI 1911 A1 is pretty much what i had on in '68/'70 but they made me give it back > i have a springfield 'loaded model' that shoots great and diqest's anything you put in the mag from hardball,hollow pts,reloads. the magazine's if you want to keep it all springfield can be purchased directly from springfield armory

I bought a springer G.I model shortly after they came out with it. It'll take any 1911 mags.
Gun shoots well and runs fine. Brass gets banged up when ejected but other than that it's been a good gun.

Outstanding Idea of keeping it all Springfield Armory...Price was not bad either for the 7 shot mag...
Like I said they had the 10 also but I did not want it sticking out the bottom...

Re: Springfield Armory GI 1911 A1?

Keeping it all springfield I don't understand?
If I recall Metalform makes the mags for the springer 1911 and can be had from other sources than springer thereselves.
SO wouldn't matter where it came from , no one would know

it really doesn't matter but its just the point - its neat to have it all the same company ... of course nobody would know, but you would know, you know? (i had to )

i like the idea of keeping it all springfield - nice

Springfield does not make their 1911 mags , so it's not all the same company straight out of the box.
That would be my point.

Re: Springfield Armory GI 1911 A1?

Regardless of who makes them, my original Springfield 1911 mags say SA45NM on the bottom, which is probably what the poster meant about "keeping it Springfield"?

My other 1911 mags are unissued GI mags. They came sealed in plastic pouches from the vendor. IIRC, they were manufactured in the 1970s. Price was right at the time, even if the finish doesn't exactly match my SA M1911A1 "loaded" mags.
