    Don't mind at all. With WI tax and the $15 mandatory background check ( :thumbsdown: :rant: ) it was a few pennies under $900 out the door. Even though it is a target model, I didn't need that rear adjustable sights add on for $100. i shoot the same way as always on my windage and a pistol ain't meant for long distance, so the wind is never a factor for me. :D ;D

    It is a very fine shooting pistol. :highfive:

    Thanks T. I HATE...I mean I HATE excess bulk. That was the toughest part of the whole thing...keeping it thin. I had to take a dremel with a 1/8" carbide endmill and hand cut those slots in. Talk about a pain... ;D :laugh:

    Thanks folks. I really like this pistol. Found a sweet handload that works very well in it, has moderate recoil and is quite accurate. Oh the fun of reloading and trying new things to see what tunes and works.

    I found some proper hardware for that sheath too. It looks much better with different screws. :highfive:

    Beautiful pistol. I was thinking of buying a SA this summer.

    If you don't mind me asking, what made you choose the Loaded model? I like the G.I. and and parkerized Mil-Spec.

    I went with it for the match grade upgrades (match frame, stainless guide plug, delta hammer, match trigger, cocobolo scales, integral locking mainspring, Tritium nightsights) and the price for this model at the local gun store was right. :highfive:

    Some people do not like the guide plug because you need an allen to take the gun apart. I could honestly care less. It gives another axis for the barrel bushing to ride on and keep tolerances tight and accuracy up.

    Man that's a good looking gun. That's my favorite Springfield and the one I have about purchased twice. Every time I do, I read 10 more threads about problems with X factory 1911. Haven't decided what I'll do on a 1911 for sure, but I defeinitely need one.
