Today our good buddy hickok45 has a new pistol he’s going to show us and it looks to be quite interesting. Now, I’ve never come across this particular hand gun before, so I don’t have alot to say about it (on a personal level that is). What I will do, is let him put this gun through it’s paces and you can make your own decision about it. I will place some information about it below, so you can go over it yourself.
I will say this though, Springfield Armory does make some really good quality firearms and though they may be a little on the expensive side, it’s money well spent.
