You sound like a bad influence... If I did that I would be spoiled. This happened when I looked through a Zeiss scope. Now I have two of them on my hunting rifles with a plan to outfit the rest of them over time.

Besides, the Springfield didn't cost anything - - I charged it!

My gun shop wants 569 (tax and all) for a mil spec. I looked at several springfields advertised on the internet as mil spec, but were actaully the gi version as described on the springfield site, so it seems to me you have to actually have the gun in your hand before you can be sure which 1911 it is. i also visited another gun shop, who had higher prices, and he handed me a 1911 with the letters gi on the gun, and told me it was a mil spec version. from what i have read, the gi costs less than the mil spec version, has different sights, and a few other differences. i had my local gun shop order a mil spec, and will evaluate it (compared to the description of a mil spec found on springfields site) to see which version it really is. nothing is simple anymore.

Brother Hal, you are correct - - the Mil Spec and the GI model are different. The Mil SPec has vastly superior sights than the GI model that I bought. Springfields website outlines the differences. It is curious that they chose such confusing names for these two models.
