    New work toy.

    Manufactured by Rock Island Armory. Stamped with "High Standard's" trademark. 1911 Compact "crusader". Put about 360 rounds of various brands through it -Not a single malfunction, misfeed, jam, or stove pipe. Upgraded to a lighter trigger, and a wilson combat recoil spring. Along with an aftermarket bushing.

    Here's a couple pictures I snapped with my phone.

    Also just picked up an FNP-40, but I love the feel of the 1911 , so it gets the spotlight.

    Nice. What exactly is the purpose of the "combat spring"?

    it's more stiff. - not to mention i suppose theyre made to last more rounds. -durability. Anything for a 1911 is pretty cheap any how.

    I think it should be read as "Wilson Combat" spring, Wilson Combat being the full name of the company. Think, e.g., "Smith & Wesson" spring, not Smith & "Wesson spring."
