I just got a new Springfield armory 1911 for my birthday, and man was i impressed. It comes in a hard plastic case with two magazines and two sets of grips,One set of cocobolo hardwood and one set of black plastic. I left the wood grips on because its stainless and it makes it look classyier (thats a word) both appear to be the same size. The fit and finish on the pistol is flawless and the slide is tight with no wiggle.
Ive taken it to the range twice and put about two hundred rounds thru it. I had only two rounds fail to eject in the first few mags, By the second hundred it was functioning beautifully. This is for sure one of my favorite guns.
