Springfield RO surprise

Post by bob finger on Wed Sep 28, 2016 11:04 am

Imagine my thrill when I got home today from the LGS with a new SA 1911 RO in stainless.  The main spring housing was missing the LCS hole!!!  Oh hurrah!  I was dismayed to see the 5 or so pages in the manual describing the ILS in exhausting detail.  

Perhaps I should contact SA and ask to send the manual back?  bob

Bob,  I am feeling sorry for you. I have a couple of extra ILS housings in my "JUNK" drawer. I would be glad to send you one so that you can still use that manual. Smile

Bob,
How's the slide to frame fit on the stainless model?

I just put normal pins and an 18# spring into the original RO MSH and it works just fine.  Put in a Colt sear spring too.

Oh yeah.  It holds a Nelson or an Advantage top.  I forget which.  One is on the RO.  One is on the Roddy made LB frame

Len:  Thanks for the offer.  I suspect I will do what 95% of us do.  Ignore the manual.  Standard MSH and parts are well ingrained in my memory.

Walt:  The slide to frame fit is as good as on any factory 1911 I've had.  Brand new it had a bit of a hitch with disconnector drag but 5 minutes of racking an empty slide fixed that.

Cleaned and lubed it last night then went to the range this AM in the rain and ran 100 rounds through it without incident.  I prefer Wilson Combat mags to the mags supplied with the pistol...they will go in the junk drawer although they DID function okay.   Shot at 20 yards and I need to put two clicks on the rear sight as it is going a bit left.  When all my mags were empty I got out of the rain.  bob
