Default 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.

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.

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.

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.
