Springfield Trophy Match

Hell everyone,

I just recently bought a Springfield TM in .45acp and I can tell you without a doubt that it is an awesome pistol! This pistol right out of the box shoots .5 groups at 25yds.(200 gr LSWC Lasercast with 4.5grs Clays Fed Primers WW Brass) Although one of the mags that came with was defected which caused a feed problem, aside from that I put 200 rounds of the load above and did not have any malfunctions. Springfield is replacing the defected mag at no cost of course. I always use Wilson mags in my 45s. My TM is blued I would of prefered SS but up here in Canada you get what you can.

Trophy Match Longslide

Sambru, when I first saw your post I had great doubt about the accuracy your claimed i.e, .5" at 25 yards(even custom builders such as Les Baer, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat...etc could not claim that). I picked up my S.A. Trophy Match Longslide this yesterday and tested fired on Sunday. I must say you were not kidding. I fired most of my groups standing one hand bullseye style and they were all about 1.5", then I sat down with two hands on the sand bag and the groups were around .5" to .7", wow! this gun really shoots. My loads were 200 gr SWC from Laser Cast with 4.0 gr WST, and Winchester large pistol primer. This load ran at around 750 fps. The felt recoil was about the same as a .22 magnum from a slight weight revolver. I really liked the muzzle heavy of this pistol. However, the target load was so slow that it wouldn't reliably compress the Longslide recoil spring enough to eject the case. I think a change of recoil spring will solve this problem. My trigger has a noticeable creep just before let-off, I wonder how is your trigger. Good shooting, Alex
