ok, so I tortured myself again and went down to the local gun shop. Before when i was there, i was looking at the springfield mil-spec. http://www.springfield-armory.com/armory.php?version=2 they gave me a good prive on it, but said it would be 2 to 3 weeks to get it. And im a little iffy about buying a gun i havent held before. when i went there today, they had a few of the GI models in there. http://www.springfield-armory.com/armory.php?version=1 they are about $100 cheeper, and the internals and frame are the same. the only change is the mil spec has a worked ejection port, the slide serrations are on a slant, and the sights are slightly taller. i plan to slowly build the gun up and get some wilson combat mags, so the extra mag that comes with the mil-spec isnt a concern, and im kinda used to military low profile sights, and they could be changed i supose. so whats your opinion??? the GI, now (as soon as i have the money), or wait for the mil-spec?
