    What do you mean a brick,with a good gunbelt and holster it's very comfortable. I carry mine 8-12 hrs a day.

    I guess I'm old school,I DO NOT like beavertails, the ambi safety adjustable sights,don't need lowered ejection ports for a carry gun.All I need is dependability and that's what I have in my Springfield GI basic.

    It depends on the size....a few of my buddys have full size and shoot the hell of out them with no trouble.....how ever, I on the other hand have a 4" compact with a 6rd frame NOTHING BUT TROUBLE! jams like clock work on the last round. See my post:Springfield 1911 4" campact 6rd fame feeding issue

    Change the recoil spring and buy a Wilson Combat mag and that should solve the problem.
