Not to be off subject but while I got you here what is your evaluation of springfield armory .45 mini-compact? Picked one up yesterday for under 5 bills. Sent about 150 rounds down range with out any problems.

Albeit technology improves each day I own no mini-compact 1911A1 cept the officers model with the stubby barrel. It has been 100% for me when I have shot it on the range but I have never packed anything small than a commander lenght 1911A1....

My CHL rig is a standard goobermint model that clark melted for me and removed the sights, filled in the dove tails etc and added a S&A Mag guide to give lenght to the grip so the heel of the butt doesn't bite my palm......

Micarta grips made for the 90 degree bottom cut of the S& A Mag guide etc etc and some other goodies I won't mention here......

Good simple point shooting rig......

Glad ya got a mini-compact that functions !

Keep me posted !

I want a mini 1911 so bad, but fear I'll get one that has function problems. A friend bought the Para Warthog. It's real nice, but not reliable enough for ccw.
