Well, thanks again gents for the advise......I'm zeroing in on the SA loaded or RO. They both seem similar with the major difference being the sights and the guide rod (standard on RO and 2 piece full length on the Loaded).
Sounds like either will make a nice choice.......
Edit: The specs also lists a "match grade" barrel for the RO, and not for the loaded. I'm not sure if that's a big deal or not?
Take it on faith. Keep it a low priority, other things matter more. BTW not all springfields are totally US. You may wanna research a little beyond the slide stamp.
