Just bought a Springfield 1911 champion, wondering if anybody has shot one or has any input on it. Thanks

Had a Springfield 1911

Had a Springfield 1911 and it was a shooter. I have had 2 Springfields 1911 and I loved both of them.

Shot a few 1911 myself. What is different about the champion?

well, most of the features are on the loaded versions of these guns, but its got novak low mount sights, an extended beaver tail so you dont get bit when you shoot, an amidextrious safety, and has a full length guide rod, which makes breakdown and cleaning alot easier.
