I have a SA loaded N series and a SA mc operator NM, and the truth is my less expensive N series is easily tighter than my NM. My loaded is actually tighter slide to frame fit than any of my Colts, Kimbers, Para Ordinance, or other SAs. my loaded easily has over 2,000 rounds threw it and it is still tighter than my brand new MC Operator with 600 rounds threw it.

In fact my loaded actually came with a air gauged stainless barrel and it shoots on par with my MC operator and Colts.

Air gauged stainless barrel? wonder if mine is like that. But I know it's dead on! Loooove it. Also love springfields customer service, they offered to pay for my shipping anytime I have an issue! Thats like saving 70 dollars!

My mistake, it is an "N" model and does have a made in brazil stamp. I had a brain fart and thought the "NM" marking was for brazil assembled for some reason.

Only Pic I have thus far. Already ordered a few new parts (Flat Trigger, SS Barrel Bushing and Spring plug).

You did REALLY well!
I have the exact same gun as you & I paid $100 more than you did.

Also, I have changed my bushing out & I want to change out to a flat trigger as well (will be my next mod). Where did you order your bushing & trigger from?

Thank you. Funny thing is I wasn't planning on purchasing a gun that day. I was going to pick up a holster and some how the 1911 came home with me

I ordered the Springfield SS Barrel Bushing, Ed Brown SS Recoil Spring Plug, and a Caspian Trik Flat Trigger from MidwayUSA. It should be arriving Wed. and hopefully be installed this weeked. I will be sure to post update pictures.
