    Here's a pic of mine (a PKZSE), which is the earlier Parkerized version. This pistol, and sometimes my FEG Hi Power, sees a lot of concealed carry duty - note the honest holster wear, which in my opinion only adds to its beauty.

    Are those the factory sights, or did you have them replaced?

    I thought Springfield had (quietly) abandoned the ILS. Is it still around in new SAs?

    If they have abandoned it, it was very quietly because I am not aware that they have done so. If that's correct, I'd like to know about it.

    Arrived yesterday at my FFL, but haven't managed to get to the range yet. Lots of dry-firing, though. :-)

    Haven't decided yet on a concealed holster, but I wanted something military to carry it around in. I found an M-12 on fleabay which fits nicely.....

    In the factory box one magazine came with the pistol, a Check-Mate 7 round. I ordered a couple more inexpensive ones from Cabela's(I had a gift card).





    The Cabela's mags have a different layout of witness holes. We'll see how they cycle & hold up.

    Looks good with a little wear on it. It appears you upgraded your sights & grips.
