I purchased a new one about 6 weeks ago and have put about 400 rounds through it so far: The first range trip (100 rounds) the rear night sight comes loose and sliding back and forth. I tighten set screw. Next range trip it comes loose every second mag. I get home and blue locktite the set screw and now it's holding OK. Today I'm shooting and about 40 rounds into it, I noice the front night sight is looking "pointed". I clear it and take a closer look. There is a small roll pin on top of the front sight working it's way up and out. So I quit shooting it as I don't want to loose the roll pin. I get home and RED locktite it and tap it back in and try to spike it a bit as well so it doesn't work it's way out again. I'm not impressed with any pistol that has s**t trying to fly off of it every time I shoot it. It also has a hard trigger pull that I was hoping would loosen up and get a little easier as it breaks in. It don't look that way though. The Springfield Loaded is supposed to be "upgraded" blah, blah, blah. I'm thinking it's a bunch of BS. I've got a Bersa Thunder .380 I paid a little over 200 bucks for that I have 1K + rounds through. Nothing's ever come loose on it. Anyway, my first 1911 experience aint real good so far.
