I saw a Springfield Loaded with adjustable sights and all the regularly featured goodies but WITHOUT the front slide serrations and the full-length guide rod. It just makes the gun so much cleaner, more classic, and desireable. The front serrations eat up leather holsters, and that damned 2-piece guide rod takes a screwdriver or allen wrench to strip the gun. The model is 9132, I believe, and it looks like an earlier gun without the chamber indicator nor key lock. I do not mind the loaded chamber notch, since my beloved Star PD has one, but the key thing in the housing is too Taurusy. Also, I like the checkered mainspring housing on the 9132. Put it on layaway, naturally. By the way, I held a Kimber, and although they are softened all around, I think the Springfield felt more solid for some reason.
