    My name is jerry, what happened to my 1911 SA Loaded SS while at the range?? Jan 2001 production date w serial # NM ImageUploadedBySpringfield Forum1461979350.523378.jpg , love this firearm and try to shoot couple of times a month, 100 rounds every time at range, bought it back in Feb 2016 and in April this kind of came apart while shooting, shocking and in disbelief?? So sad

    Welcome aboard,that sucks about the gun though,I'd definitely be sending it back,they should replace it. My name's Jerry too and if the 62 in your name is the year you were born,then we're the same age too. ;) :D

    Wow. Did it come apart with extra muzzle blast excitement or did the end just fall to the floor? I have no answers. Just questions.

    I was at the indoor range, I shot 2 clips of 5, on the 3rd clip 2nd shot I noticed it shot way off target and was holding my SA in pieces?? Laid it down in disbelief and went to get the range manager, he had to stop everyone to retrieve the broken piece ten feet out, drew quite a crowd, no one had ever seen it happen b4, guess I won't shoot on lane 13 again....
