Trying to find out if a springfield v-16 is a 45 super even tho it has 45acp on the slide.The one I had years ago had 45 super on the slide.The one I'm interested in now does not have super written anywhere on it.Are all v-16"s supers?

When you post,
even tho it has 45acp on the slide
Is that what is stamped or is 45 Auto stamped on it??

Mine is not marked anywhere on it nor is it indicated in the user manual that it is a 45 Super.
What makes "MY" V-16 a Super is the 23 lbs. recoil spring and the -*starline*- brass marked 45 Super (or store bought 45 super ammo).
I was expecting it to be marked like the earlier ones with 45 ACP/45 SUPER but apparently that isn't done anymore.
