I don't doubt that there are good Springfield Professional's out there, but this review scared me away-
Hype vs. Reality, The Springfield Professional PC9111
I ended up with a Les Bear UTC 5" model from CJ1911Heaven. He was great to deal with and ships on Monday. Look at the Ed Brown and it was another 800 bones and I might get one later. I think the Les Bear is an itch I have to do. John did talk about the guns are built tight. I will shoot enough the first weekend to break it in.
If I do enough horse trading. I might go ahead and get a Ed Brown afterwards.
