I bought a stainless Loaded after I saw one in my favorite shop.
I wasn't looking for it, but it was for a really good price and so I thought why not check it out.
I've heard the negatives and the comparisons so I really didn't expect much.
I have other Springfield 1911's and everyone of them is an excellent gun.
I don't know if I just found a good one or not but it was the tightest fit gun (1911) that I've ever had and it was just a well made nice looking gun.
I bought it and I really liked it after I shot it.
Now my advice is to look at 1911's in a few gun stores and then decide what you want.
The Loadeds have some nice features but so do other guns.
Shop around and then decide what you want.
