THANK YOU ALL!! Pretty chincy for Springfield leaving out the PLASTIC mainspring wrench, (I honestly thought it was just missing), and EVERY Kimber owner I know, thinks Kimber is SO cheap by supplying only ONE mag like Springfield (except their poly guns) but Kimber does include a plastic mainspring wrench, as does: Dan Wesson, Kimber, Ruger, Sig Sauer, Remington, and Colt. And I’m sure others. Maybe: Taurus, Rock Hill?? I‘m not 100% sure about them. But I’d say the RONIN‘s closest matches would be, price wise: Kimber and Ruger, maybe Colt, and Remington 1911’s as well. And Kimber, and Colt(?) gives you a plastic lockable box. Would like that!!
I’m also wondering how much it might cost to get the front strap checkered by a local gunsmith? or, send to Springfield to have them do it?? Springfield doing it cheaper or more expensive option?? IDK. Thanks all, as always!! 😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃 And THANK YOU ALL for the POSITIVE feedback!!! SO KIND of ALL OF YOU!!!!😀😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃
