I think I'm in love...

Springfield Lightweight Champion Operator, black frame, cocobolo wood grips, 4" model.

May have to start saving my change; I may want to add this to the carry rotation.

I'll probably end up changing the grips out if I get it.

She's a beauty.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

Springfield, when I called, said MSRP is 1066.00 or so.

The kid next door knows he can get it to me for around 800; BUT, he said his boss can possible get it cheaper since he is a direct distributor for Springfield. I'm just waiting to catch him not busy so I can ask him.

What grips are those? Like I said, if I end up with this gun, I'll be changing the grips out quickly. I like the way the wood looks, but the pistol I bought my dad for Christmas has the same exact wood grips, and I don't think they are the most effective choice for a great shooting grip. I'd rather have something rougher on it.

Thanks. It's the olive grips from Alumagrips. It does look like cold hard steel all around. It's different from polymer pistols and other 1911s. I didn't care much for the wood.

Yep, although the Kimber rubber grips were not bad I had to change them out.

Only stainless in the champion size. I had a full size and it was a pain in the ass to carry. It seemed to pinch my ass hard every time I sat down.
