Yes it will have a flared & lowered ejection port. The only real value is it keeps the brass from being dented if you reload. One thing for you to consider is that 1911s have always needed quality magazines to run properly. There is a large market for quality 1911 magazines for .45 ACP caliber guns so makers such as Tripp & Wilson satisfy that need. Most folks use these high quality magazines as the factory mags are generally not that good. As far as quality magazine support for 9mm 1911s - I really don't know as they are not that common and only recently have companies like Taurus & Rock Island entered the market. Just food for thought...

Loaded's generally have night sights, Loaded Targets have adjustable sights. I own one of each...

And since you have two, I think you should make me a deal on one of them. I have a J-Frame .38spcl plus some cash with your name on it....

The target models are usually a little tighter fit than the loaded models. This can lead to better accuracy to be honest the gain you get is not so much that it makes one model better over another. I have a 9mm target model and it is an extreamly accurate pistol. But with that comes the less places dirt can get into it because it is really tight fit. And it would not be good to carry around or leave in a night stand to keep the house safe.

If it was me and this was a first or a one gun house situation I would lean to the loaded over a target model. You can always upgrade it later if that's your preference.

I target model is fit tighter therefore has less places for dirt to get. So if you are carrying a really tight fit weapon it can get dirt in places that can make it not work properly.Same can be said about leaving it in some nightstand drawer.
