The Springfield Armory Custom Shop is not a place we visit often, lest I need to remortgage my house. But they do put out top notch guns, for those of discerning taste. I have never been accused of that, but they let me fondle the goods anyway.
The Custom Shop employs twelve gunsmiths, with a combined 250 years of experience. This isn’t some home for wayward engravers, these guys build functional guns. At any given time, in addition to work on your gun, they have several “in house” packages available from your local dealer.
One such option is the Professional model, which is finally close to being back in stock and no longer back ordered. The frame and slide are hand fit, and the fit an finish are superb. Just handling this gun, you will know where your money went.
Next is the Single Stack Model, built for competitive shooting. It comes standard with a flared magwell, competition sights, and a light trigger. The dust cover on this model is sized for a rail, which is not cut in. This adds weight to the front of the gun, helping keep it on target during rapid fire.
Also in the lineup, a PPC specific model. This is a 9mm long slide model, with an adjustable rear sight for different distances. The bull barrel in this one promises incredible accuracy.
If you need something off the beaten path, Springfield Armory Custom Shop is the place to look. And if they don’t have it, they can create it.
