    When did Springfield stop making their 1911 frames here? What is a U.S. Framed Springfield worth, like a mil-spec, in decent cosmetic condition?

    SA gets all their forgings (save maybe operators) from Imbel Brazil. Large established weapons manufacturer. NM serialed guns are "made" in US by ATF standards and many believe to have a better fit/finish. Typically not so much worth more $$ as maybe more sought after.
