The Springfield Loaded Model is well worth its price, with a combination of Novak sights, an ambidextrous safety, and adequate accuracy.
The shooter’s view of the Loaded Model. The ambidextrous safeties are prominent in the profile.
The grip safety and slide safety shown from the right side of the gun. Both worked as expected. Some shooters will disagree with the handiness of the ambi safety, but it’s a helpful feature in our view.
