    1st Post: Thanks for the add! In about a month I went from never owning a Springfield to owning two: The SA-35 and the Prodigy 4.25. The SA-35 has functioned perfectly, and after having the last failure to feed around the 250 mark on the round count, the Prodigy has run with no failures. Good...
