I purchased a stainless Loaded back in August and it had a serial number starting with "NM". I just picked up a blued Loaded today and it has a serial number starting with only "N". Does this mean my stainless Loaded has a national match frame, or is this just wishful thinking on my part?

Enzyme,
Springfield uses the "NM" prefix on several models. It is mere coincidence and does NOT designate a National Match pistol.

Deb at Springfield told me the NM serial number was on American made pistols (which of course I though mine was, and found out otherwise
)

Depends on the year

I had a Mil-Spec with the NM prefix bought new in 92, IIRC manufactured under the original Springfield Armory, prior to the reorganization as Springfield Inc. At that time the NM prefix was used to indicate a national match spec gun.

That is a pistol I wish I still had!
