I have had the Spingfield Long Slide for a while. It works very well - with light loads I did switch to a 12 or 14 lb spring. My bullseye scores went up 10 - 15 points due to the increased sight radius.

I liked it so much I ordered the Trophy Match Long Slide. In just a couple of words - I am very pleased. Fit, finish, & accuracy are just that much better.

trigger creeps

Ken, I just picked up my S.A. Longslide Trophy Match. I test fired it yesterday. I must say it is a very well non-custom production gun. The slide to frame fit is very tight, the bull barrel fit to the slide without any play. It shoots very good; the felt recoil is mild and very accurate(all 25 yards 5-shot groups were under 1.5" using target SWC loads at about 780 fps). The only thing I didn't like was the trigger pull. There is a noticeable creep before let-off. The trigger pull was in around 4 to 4.5 pound but the creep makes it unpredictable. The creep feels like when you first apply pressure to trigger it creeps to "set it up" then more pressure to let-off. I am used to clean crisp trigger break and this trigger bothers me. Any suggestion how to reduce or remove the creep? Alex

not too many around

I guess not too many shooters fancy the long slide except us lol.
I just picked one up for $900,and am planning on doing some 45 super handloading.
my 1911 full size and my xd40 are works of art,and I expect nothing less from springfield armory.
they make some absolutely fabulous pistols,and the long slide has got to be my new favorite.I shoot a desert eagle on a regular basis,and the larger v-16 does not pose any problems for me,the porting,styling,and quality is readily apparant.
I tend to flock to unique pistols and calibers,and the 45 super is another one to add to my collection.
I also enjoy shooting the 10 mm and 41 magnum,along with most other magnum rounds.
let us know what you think of the long slide,and welcome to the club.

It has been three weeks since I picked up my Longslide trophy match. I can tell you that this gun is very well put together. The slide to frame fit is very tight, the barrel to slide fit is also very tight. Initally there is a noticeable creep before the sears breaks. I lightened the trigger pull from the factory 4 pounds to 2 and a half pound and the creep is gone. I absolutely love this pistol. My bullseye score went up at least 30% when compares to my tricked out Colt 70 series National Match. I am not putting down my Colt, on the contrary, I think the National Match was a great pistol, the new SA Longslide trophy match just slightly better in every which way; the fit, the finish, the handling, and accuracy right out of the box. If anyone who wants to get a Longslide be sure to get the Trophy Match verison. I don't particulary care for the V-12 model, or the target model has does not have 20 lpi front strap checking. The TM is truely a fully loaded model with everything you need right there. I paid $1099 for it. I think the extra couple hundred dollars was well spent on the extra features such as front strap checking, magazine well, ambi safety, and perhaps a tighter fit. My Longslide trophy match can definitely shoot with the top guns. Alex
