So my SA 1911A Champion was shooting high, having feed ramp issues, and having some extractor issues. I called Customer Service and spoke with Deb. I told her about my issue, and she quickly emailed me a shipping label/instructions, and I sent it out the next day which was Wednesday 5/24 and I received it back today 6/29. Springfield refit the slide and frame, replaced the extractor, replaced the barrel, replaced the front and rear tritium night sights (to shoot point of aim), and refinished the slide. I was SOOO happy to hear that they had done all these things to rectify my issues and under warranty at no charge to me. Except for two "problems". Well... At least one problem and one thing I may just be being anal about. 1.) The barrel they replaced is longer than the original. If I were to guess, i would say about a a quarter of an inch longer. I wasn't fond of it at first, but I was starting to get over it, and it is actually starting to grow on me. BUT I would have preferred the original "flushness" of the other barrel... 2.) The front Trijicon sight they installed is dim. So dim in fact, that my camera couldn't even pick up the little glimmer of light it put out in complete darkness. I am going to call them tomorrow morning to see what they say. I would hate to go without it again for another two weeks as it is my daily carry, but also don't want to pay $65 dollars for the local shop to do it (That's what they quoted me) if Springfield sends me a new one. If I do end up sending it in, I would like for them to flush the barrel, but my wife said that I am not dropping another dime on anything gun related for a while... so it would only happen if they covered it. What are my options here guys? Thoughts? BTW. I've included pics of said "issues" DOES THIS NEW BARREL LOOK RIGHT TO YOU? IF YOU RECEIVED THIS, WOULD YOU BE CONTENT? UPDATE: So I sent my 1911 back on Friday 6/10/11 and received a call from Megan at SA today saying my 1911 was "ready" and I will be receiving it Thursday. She told me the front sight was replaced however, the replacement barrels that SA uses are longer than the stock bull barrels. She noted that the new "longer" barrels are of higher quality and of improved performance, and pretty much saying there was nothing they could do. Maybe they were having issues with there 4" bull barrels and made modifications to address those issues. I Guess I will have to live with the new one. At this point, I just really want my 1911 back. I miss it sooooo much. I feel naked without it! I am SOMEWHAT disappointed, but glad the sight got fixed and that it will soon be on my hip again. Any thoughts/comments from you folks on their response?
