What kinf of Springfield is this???
My brother just purchased a used blued Springfield 1911 with a factory compensator on it at a local gun store that had a price of $600 on it. The serial number is NM135383. Maybe "NM" stands for National Match? It came with the box when purchased.
As I said it is totally stock with a dual vent compensator on the front and "Factory Comp" is engraved at the front of the slide right behind the compensator. It has a Videki trigger and outside of that the gun looks mil-spec.
Also, the armory symbol is on the right side of the gun just in front of the serrations which is wierd (usually they are on the front if I'm not mistaken). The slide racks very light and smooth.
There is no model number on the box.
What can anyone tell me about this gun? What model is it and when might it have been made? Is it worth anything? :-?
Thanks in advance!

In the mid 90s, springfield made a series of guns with factory comps..one was a dual port short slide gun, another I believe was on a 5" slide.

Springfield started making these after the IPSC/USPSA crowd started using custom made compensators and before optical sights became popular.
The PDP (Personal Defense Pistol) Defender was available in 40 S&W and 45 ACP, was a Champion size pistol with the dual port comp. Finishes available were parkerized (discontinued in 1992), blue (discontinued in 1993) and dual tone. Production ran from 1991 to 1998.
The PDP Factory Comp was available in 38 Super and 45 ACP, Government model slide, 5 5/8" barrel with a cone dual port compensator system, adjustable sights, Videcki speed trigger, checkered walnut stocks, Commander type hammer, blue finish. Production ran from 1991 to 2000.
