    I have looked at thread after thread and picture after picture and still have not come up with what Im after. Maybe somebody here can help me.

    I have a Springfield Armory 1911-A1 model PX9608L made in 2001. It looks more like a "loaded" than a "mil spec" but it does not have the ambi safety. The rear sight in the picture is aftermarket but I have the original sight.

    I picked it up in a trade and was wanting to trade it off but am not sure how to figure out a value with so many models out there.

    If I missed a good thread on this Im sorry but I could use some help on this. Thanks

    Thanks guys, so would it be considered a MilSpec version or the Loaded? I’m wanting to advertise it for trade (for a comparable 1911 with an ambi safety) and I just want to be able to accurately describe what it is.

    I have the same model. Called SA and asked what it was. The lady told me that is was the "Loaded" before they officially had the Loaded model.

    Sweet gun, love the blued finish.

    I have the same gun bought in 08-2000. Paid $550 OTD PX9608 is a Loaded with almost all the same bells & whistles except mine didn't have the dovetailed front sight like the newer version.
    Sent it in to SA last summer for some issues and got it back with a new SS barrel and bushing. Had it armory-koted black.
    Should have had night sights installed but oh well.
    I really like mine...wouldn't sell it cause it would cost too much to replace it.
