    I have a Springfield 1911; it is very much a clone of the Colt that I carried years ago. It is a no frills, meat & potato gun and very solid. I have not added anything to this one, leaving it unmoddified; mine has checkered walnut grips that are very sentimental.
    It is a solid, dependable firearm that upholds its namesakes legacy.

    I do not own the RI version nor have I fired one, so no comment there.

    Good luck,

    Rock Island\Springfield 1911

    I'm looking for an "affordable" 45 on a 1911 platform. I've pretty much narrowed it down to the mil-spec Rock Island, and the Springfield ($100 more). There are a ton of reviews out there on both, but I thought I would see if anyone here has any trigger time with either of these models. I know that neither will be a tack driver, but I'm not planning on entering matches with it either. I just want a no frills, reliable 45.

    Advice and comments welcome
