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.
