Well I got it here locally at the Rhine Group out in Ankney they found and order it for me in no time. Came in last week and to me its a work of art.
As one of the member said "the 1911 is a gun to hold all others too" and he was right, I love my Hk usp and hate my Glocks but this gun im having a love affair with.

Took her out before i went on duty Friday night and put couple hundred rounds through it to get a better feel and practices holster draw.


First impression is because of the slim design it has a great feel and easily concealable. The weapon comes out of the holster easy and has a good pull when coming up to target. Even though it weight a whopping 40 oz unloaded once you have the magazine in the weapon it balance it out perfectly.

Novak sights are pretty kick ass with the 3 dot combat sights.

First shoots

The weapon shot where i aimed, not worries there.


I might not be the best shot but i think the weapon preformed well its just time to adjust and learn how to shoot better now.

Overall i think ever one needs a 1911 and a highly recommend the SpringField Loaded.

Thank you Rhine Group for finding the weapon for me and thanks Strongarm for the tips.

I look at it, we where in the shop at the same time. Gotto love that two round semi shootgun

yeah, I had to figure out how the damn thing worked. Strongarm's shotgun-fu was weak.

I wouldnt want to be on the other end of his shotgunfu thought. The shot gun was older then me and you and a rare little bugger. It be a great gun if it had 4 more rounds.

My highly logical mind could not figure out why anyone would need let alone design a 2-shot, semi auto shotgun. Firing and reloading seems to be a little too labor intensive for me.

The shotgun so light if it had shorter barrel and more ammo ca it could have potential

Well Beretta would disagree with you. Shotgun games require no more than 2 shots and the recoil reduction of semi-auto is beneficial in the high-speed stuff.
