Both my wife and I have the Springfield Micro Compact in 45 Auto's. I asked why they quit making them. I know, I know, folks like the XD and Glocks but i, for one, love the grip safetyand the ability to carry it "cocked and locked". The guy I talked with said he likes the Compact too and doesn't know why they quit making them. At Gun Broker the price for these, used is up to $1200 (??)
I also told him i would love to have one in 38 Super. I shot IPSC WAY back when I was the first to shot one in Competition, at that time. I had a Combat Commander with a Barsto Barrel and ran some ++ P ammo , to make major. Except the Colt threw cases away at diff angles each shot, I did well with it. Like a fool I sold it to a friend, on the premise, If he ever decided to sell it, I would have First right of Refusal, on buying it back. We all know what happened there.
Do any of you know why they stopped making such a good carry gun, in a cal I really like?
Are there any reported problems with the Springfield Micro Compact, that you know of ??
