Is this a deal.

I found this online for $650. It's a SA 1911-A1. About 500 rounds put through it. Looks mint from the pic. Anything glaring I should look for as far as problems? Thanks for any input.

You really need a picture of the other side. See if the ejection port is lowered and flared. If not, its a base model junker that sells for 5-$600 new.

How's this.

I'm no expert, but it appears as the ejection port is flared and lowered. Almost appears to be a loaded model but I'm not sure. If it is a loaded model that seems like a pretty incredible deal.

It looks like a Springfield Loaded from here, but I'm not 100% sure.

Extended beavertail, flat MSH, nite sites .... buy it.

Oopsey. Double post.

Check the crown of the barrel, slide to frame fit and if it runs well. If so, buy it and don't look back. It's a Loaded model.

Thanks all. Sounds like I might have found a deal.

I agree - Loaded model. I got mine new for $799
As long as it is in good shape (as CA357 says to check for) - this is a good price.
