I had a lemon of a milspec. $650 of gunsmithing later it's a really nice match pistol.
I wish I got the colt instead. I now have a colt rail gun (pretty much an XSE) and I would have been 100% happier with a model 70 repro or a 1991 instead of the milspec for about $200 more at the time.
I don't think I'll ever buy another Springfield.
