    Do you want me to call around to see if I can find you a Loaded?

    As a Springfield fanboy and owner of a Milspec, EMP and two TRP's, I don't think that the Loaded is the best value in the Springfield line up. I owned a Loaded black stainless target and while it looked great, the trigger was heavy and the fitting was not the best.

    You should be able to find a TRP for 1350-1400 if you want to save a little more money, it will definitely be worth it. Or take a step down to the Mil Spec and have an Ambi Safety installed. Don't be afraid to keep an eye out for a used TRP, you can find them in good condition at reasonable prices, and stainless versions always seem to be a little cheaper. Springfield's warranty is the best in the business.

    Having both Springfield TRP and Sig, the Sig stainless rail is very nice and has excellent specs for a 1911 within your budget range. I'd suggest that you put one in your hand and give it a closer look. BTW-the magwell and grips were added to the Sig.

    Thanks John,thats a real nice offer but I'm not sure what I want yet,and don't want to put you threw that much trouble until I do_One of my LGS has one (or did) for $900.00 but that seems to be a bit high after seeing what Bud's had it for.

    Yes it does. I may have to reconsider my future options.

    I was able to fondle a SIG 1911 @ my LGS; very nice gun indeed but I'm just not a fan of railed 1911s.

    That seems a bit high, I paid a little under $700 for mine NIB.

    If my memory serves me right, I think I picked it up right before you posted the thread/pictures of that beautiful Loaded that you customized. I wish I had the knowledge and know how....one day maybe!

    I love my Springfield Range Officer. Next step up for me would be a TRP which I will be in the market for next tax season.
