    i got my loaded ss 1911 back from springfield this morning and couldnt be happier. I sent it in 3 weeks ago because the fitment on the rear was really bad and was an eyesore. This is what it looked like before

    springfield customer service is awesome..they blended the back nicely,refinished it, and shipped it back for free with no hassles. their lifetime warranty is great and they take care of their customers unlike a some other companies (beretta). I need to take it to the range this weekend and shoot some zombie targets i got this week too :noes:

    That looks really good. I have a Springfield GI SS, I like to hear their customer service is good.

    I always wondered about that, I guess it's legal for arms manufacturer to send firearm (you already own) directly to you.

    That's awesome, and its great to know they'll actually rectify it for you if you're unhappy.
    Score one for Springfield, just like S&W. If only other would follow their lead, instead of alienate their customers.

    I want to send my gun in for the same issue.
    What did you tell them when you requested the fix?

    i just told them the overhang in the back was a bit excessive and sent them pictures. i doubt yours could have been as bad as mine though lol.

    Good for them for fixing it, but honestly thats pretty shitty that it even came like that in the first place.
