    Review: Springfield Armory 9mm Garrison 1911

    I’ll continue to whine like the poor little … that I am … some of us live in the hot humid south! People that write comments like “…while the front strap is left comfortably smooth“ don’t live and train down here! Front strap checkering PLEASE! Others are kind enough to tell me “just spend more...

    Springfield Operator vs. Mil-Spec 1911

    Why is it impossible for SA to produce a 1911 with front strap checkering? not all of us shoot indoors on climate controlled ranges! Summer time in Louisiana makes for very sweaty days! Sure I can take the firearm to a gunsmith but why not from the factory?

    Review: The New Springfield Operator 1911 .45 ACP

    Does anyone from Springfield read any of these posts? How many times do you posters mentionI got front strap checkering? At least this has ambi safety!

    Review: The New Springfield Operator 1911 .45 ACP

    Agree with your comment concerning front strap checkering! Those of us in the humid south shooting outdoors appreciate that feature so much! C’mon Springfield if Taurus can checker the front strap so should you!

    Review: The Ronin EMP

    Why is it impossible for SA to sell a 1911 without front strap stippling! Especially for conceal carry! very frustrating SA puts out these firearms with that simple feature!

    Springfield Armory Garrison 1911 Review

    Why is it impossible for SA to produce\sell a 1911 with front strap serrations? Not all of us live in cool low humidity environs. An ambi safety would also be nice. Sadly many ‘smiths in my area will not work on SAs so if I could find one, I would end up shipping it back for the front strap...

    Review: Emissary 4.25" .45 ACP

    So close…finally a SA 1911 with front strap checkering. Now if it did not have the square trigger guard and had AMBI controls I might buy one.

    First Look: Springfield Armory Emissary 1911 Review

    Any chance of a 9mm version in the future? Nice touch with front strap grip surface! With the heat and humidity here no front strap stippling is a deal breaker! But why oh why is it so hard to include ambi safety? I shoot left handed, wife shoots right…an ambi safety would be a bonus!

    Ayoob and the Ronin

    I don’t understand why there’s no front strap checkering? How much more would it cost? If the stars and moon align I might buy one but would immediately take it to Clark’s guns to have checkering done...small touches make for a great gun

    Magpul’s Mega-Capacity Drums

    If only I could find a 308 that I could afford! Last auction I followed on Gun broker the rifle sold for $2600...much as I would like a Saint Victor in 308 I just can’t swing that! Any chance we will the 308 at resalers before the EOs go into place after the MSM coronation of the new king?

    Anybody had any luck buying a Saint Edge Rifle?

    Understand your frustration! Have been looking for a Saint Victor in 308 for months now with no joy! Sadly I check all the sites you do as well...hate to go with another brand since the Victor has exac what I want...

    7.62 NATO vs. .308: Is There a Difference?

    Would be great to actually find one of those Saint Victors in 308...nothing but vapor ware for months now! Shame marketing and operations cannot get on the same page...

    How Do I Buy a Gun?

    Is Springfield Armory even making guns right now? No one has anything but M-1As and I cannot afford nor want one. Any hope of having product available before Biden wins and firearm sales will be burdensome or worse?
