Springfield Loaded

Discussion in '1911 Forums' started by bobbss, Nov 28, 2012.

  1. SA has a good reputation but I prefer an American made 1911 for a gun in the 1k range I would go colt Xse or rail gun

    Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
  2. I stopped by another LGS last night and did get to look at a Colt,wasn't bad either,I think it was $1025.00 but might have been alittle more.The guy behind the counter must of been having a bad day and pizzed me off soon as I asked to look at it,so I was having a hard time staying focused,I had to keep fighting the urge to tell him to Fxxk himself.lol!I also looked at the Ruger alitte more,I think what I don't like about it is the disscharge opening looks bigger (not sure if I said that right or not).Is it bigger?

  7. Of course the only problem I see with them is the lack of holster availability. I would go with the loaded if you want stainless. My personal suggestion, if you're going to spend $1000, mind as well fork out the extra few hundred and buy a stainless trp...

    Is this your first 1911. Forgive me if it's been mentioned already.

    Ditto. And I'm a huge fan of SA 1911's. I own 5 of them, but just can't make myself like the Loaded model. To me, it goes straight from Mil-Spec to TRP.
  9. What about the MC Operator?

    The MC Operator is a Loaded with a rail & two tone finish
  11. This will be my first 1911.The Sig is way lower on my list,I do have a Sig P938 I like.I haven't found a TRP at any LGSs,and aren't they more like $1,400.00 or more?I've got to draw a line somewhere.

    That is a bit much for a TRP.......find a new shop!

    The SA Loaded is awesome for sure my friend:thumbsup:
  14. How much have you seen them for?Bac1023 has $1,400.00 for the average price on his buyers guide.
  15. The lowest price that I found on a new SS TRP was $1447.
    IMO it's worth every cent.

    I saw a new TRP Operator (rail) this am and it was $1569.

    You can probably find a used TRP in the neighborhood of $1200 and maybe less.

    You're on the right track, asking questions and doing your homework. As I recall I bought a NIB S&W for my first 1911 because $1000 was my limit. It was enough for the bug to bite but I sold it after about six months. I was an absolute PEST to Bac. Thankfully he is a patient man.

    If you really want to stay under a $1000 you should look at the Ruger. There's a new thread here with a link to a store that had at least 20 of them earlier today.

    Good luck.

  18. Honestly, go with the loaded. It's a great first 1911 and you don't really need to do much to it. I have both the standard and the champion and I really like both. You're just going to have to really knuckle down and try to find one.

    You may also think about the range officer as well.
