So the Springfield Prodigy 1911DS...this was a rocky start and in my first video I shared my experience and disappointment. This took some work and I understand the fan boys may not agree, but out of the box it was not good to go. I want this to be a great handgun for the market but it needed some work. I go over what issues I found, how I fixed them and most important...does it run now?
