Right out of the box at our outdoor range, at 30 yards a small piece of shooting clay it took 3 shots then a smaller piece 2 shots. I happy with the mil spec Springfield 45
Overall I love the Springfield 1911 Mil Spec. Put a couple hundred rounds through it already with no problems. Dead accurate. Cleaning is a bit of a pain. The slide stop is hard to reinsert after cleaning. That is the only complaint I have about this gun-a minor irritation compared to weapon performance. Highly recommend this weapon. High quality at bargain price.
This is just an awesome gun. It's a thrill for me to own it and a real joy to shoot it. It looks great, feels perfect in my hands, shoots flawlessly and as straight as I aim it. I love taking it down, cleaning it, and reassembling it. I have other hand guns but this is the one I talk about.
Purchased one for $400. Trigger is crisp & accuracy is match grade.
