I texted the seller again on Saturday telling him I want the pistol for a Father's Day gift, which is true, a Father's Day gift for me, and he hasn't messaged me back at all. I'm voting him off the island.
I found another SA Loaded with 600 rounds through it, has a 4.5# trigger job done by a gunsmith, and is owned by a guy who works for the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. I will meet him on Monday evening if his schedule opens up.
He must be more serious and dependable than the first guy I dealt with, he has already taken the online ad off. Oh, yeah and this one is only $700.
Stainless black he called it. Never heard of that.

I got it picked up. Thing is beautiful! And it already has the idiot scratch so I don't have to put it on myself. The guy I bought it from is an agent with KBI, really nice guy. He didn't need to see ID, or have me sign anything. I LOVE Kansas gun laws!!!!!!!
I tried to upload from photobucket, but pics aren't coming through. I've done this in other forums, but there is something here that I don't have right.

"Blackened Stainless" is a very nice finish. I like it.

You should be able to polish out the mark.

I recently saw Edge of Darkness, a 2010 film with Mel Gibson. It was a pretty good movie with Gibson as a police officer whose daughter gets killed.

A Springfield Armory Loaded Champion, stainless steel, with a Hogue overmolded grip, had a big part in the movie. Very cool-looking pistol!

Yeah, I really like the black in the slide and top strap. It has never been holstered, that's gonna change. Trigger is sweet, he said it was 4.5# but it feels lighter than that, probably from being used to mash the triggers on my P89 and Keltec P11. I think I'll go in to work early tomorrow and pop a few rounds off before anyone gets there just to say I've fired it.

Shot the SA 1911 at 6:30 this morning. Trigger is really nice. first 5 shot group at 5 yards was just under 3". I know I can do better, but that was the first time shooting it. I'll try to get a pic up when I get home tonight.
