A few weeks ago I picked up this SA Loaded 1911 as a new range gun and I am happy to say it has so far surpassed all my expectations. I own and shoot primarily Sig's (P series) and Kimber pistols and have to say for a $700 1911 I was not expecting the performance I am getting. Its much more accurate than I was anticipating and with 1800 rounds down range it has never once failed to feed or fire. Cant say that about my Kimbers, at least not right out of the box. Just wanted to get it out there to anyone thinking about picking one up. Well worth it!
