Hi!

Does anyone own or have experience shooting custom .45s from Springfield Armory or Rock River Arms?

Still researching my options..... (under $3K)

Thanks!

I have a Rock River Arms Wad gun and couldn’t be happier.  Have shot it for years, no issues ever and it still shoots better than I do!

I have several SA Custom shop guns in pretty much all calibers except 40S&W, both build from scratch and regular production fine tuned or converted (9mm to 38Super).  That includes Pro (commonly referred as FBI model) and Single Stack Classic in 45ACP.  These guns are excellent!!  SA Custom Shop is a best kept secret of Springfield Armory!!  However Chris M is absolutely correct, - Shop is so busy with outstanding orders (mostly government) for complete builds, that wait time is insane (longer than Wilson, Baer, Nighthawk, Brown, etc.), and shop doesn't take any custom work other that trigger work.

I have a Rock River Arms wad gun circa 2005 with about 6K rounds through it  that I will cut loose when I get my new Black Mass gun in hopefully a month or so. I do not need three wad guns. It will come with factory test target and factory case. Under $2K. PM if interested.

I have a springfield custom shop gun, has been my main .45 for almost 6 years. Very good build quality. In hindsight i think it was well worth the $$

John Shue is who I contracted with. The H1 shades I got from him have BM on them. Are Shue and Black Mass not the same?

I've got an older RRA wadcutter, and its the best gun I own. Better than my Les Baer.
