I just received my 1911 Loaded model back from Springfield's Custom Shop & I couldn't be more pleased. I sent it to them about 5-6 weeks ago for upgrades & it is better than I expected.

It started out as a standard OD Green Loaded Model & I had the following enhancements done:

Novak Night Sights
Smith & Alexander Mag Well
30 LPI checkering on the front strap & main spring housing
4 lb Trigger pull

When I racked the slide, I found they had even worked the ramp & that was not even on my list. They even returned the old parts. What more could I ask for?

Using Wilson 47D mags, I have put 200 rds of my handloads (9.1 grs AA5 with 200gr Hornady XTP) thru it today without a single burp. It shoots better than I can, giving 8 rds inside of 1 1/2 inches at 25 yards off the bench. But it is not overly tight like some target-match guns, so I am sure it will be utterly reliable.

I still have to replace that damn fill length guide rod with a standard setup. I ordered a variety of Wolff recoil springs today & hopefully by Saturday, I will be able to ring it out some more. I am going to try some different loads & then run a few boxes of Triton & CorBon thru it to see what happens.

Sorry the pics aren't better, I had the quality turned down so they would load faster. :(

Looks great! Congrat's! I have been thinking about sending in my XD9 to them to have the trigger worked on. Would like to get a shorter reset and have heard they do a wonderful job.
