Loaded Milspec

I just got a quote from a dealer on a "Loaded" Milspec. I didn't know there was such a thing, I guess this is different from a standard Milspec? If so, what's the difference?

Thanks,

Ryan

I suspect what he has is the PX9109L with the Loaded features of Novak sight, holey trigger, and beavertail on a gun with the dull parkerized milspec finish. Better ask or get a look first, though, they turn out some stuff not strictly out of the catalog.

Jim,
I think you are right. A friend of mine just purchased a "loaded" model SA with the parkerized finish. The distributor called it milspec and was promptly corrected due to the features you listed.

good shootin', gunny

I actually called Springfield the other day about that. The Loaded version is basically a mil-spec with a full length guide rod, target trigger, Novak night sights, carry bevel treatment, beavertail grip safety and a few other things. It's a better value for the money, and you can replace the full length guide rod. There are no other internal differences between the Mil-spec and the loaded version other than the full length guide rod.

Thanks for the replys. I think what he was referring to was actually just a Mil Spec with the "loaded" coupons from Springfield to purchase accessories for cheaper than the normal price.

It looks like he has an actual loaded pistol in stainless for just a little over $100 more... sounds like a good deal, so I'll probably go with that. Only problem is, one reason I liked the Mil Spec was the lack of front cocking serrations and that it didn't have much in the way of markings on the slide, just "Springfield 1911-A1." I was thinking of one day having it customized and thought it would make a good base gun. I'll probably go with the loaded version after all, though, and just replace the slide with a Caspian later on if I decide to go the custom route with it.
