    Looks a little smaller than a typical 1911, what's the barrel length?

    Thats what is. 4" barrel makes it Champion. Its the lightweight to so this baby is a carry gun too. Thanks everyone...im very happy to have been able to add it to my collection. Fine shooter too !

    I believe you're right. After reading your post I realized my mistake. The full size version is called an Operator, as opposed to a Champion Operator. My bad dutchs...

    You bet...I am sorry I didn't bring the target. I was in a hurry. She is a very accurate gun though just as you would expect from a quality Springfield! I will click a pic next time.:)
