    I bought a Lipsey's exclusive " PE9209LP COMBAT OPERATOR® 9MM " , I don't know much about it except what was on , http://www.springfield-armory.com/products/1911-loaded-9mm/
    I have other 1911's but I just felt like I needed a Springfield , if it shoots as well as my others I will be happy.
    I have been cruising the board trying to find information on them but I haven't found much info so far , some nice pictures of one but it was stainless , I didn't even see a stainless one offered.
    I guess I will try you tube next.

    Gratz on your new 1911

    Congratulations! I am sure you will love it!

    As far as I know Springfield does not make junk!

    I've only owned two 1911s--a Remington Rand (made for WWII when non-gunmakers were making guns; this was not a great shooting gun) and a Charles Daily (manufactured by Rock Island Armory). If I ever get another 1911, it will probably be a Springfield, but I'm loving my XD Mod2 .45 so much that I don't feel an urgent need for a 1911. I might feel differently on Nov. 9.

    After you've shot it a few times, I'd love to hear how your new Springfield compares with you other 1911s.

    Please post your evaluation of the new one.

    Congrats! But, photos of your new pistol are pretty much mandatory. ;)
