I'd have to say that after at least 1,000 rounds through my SA Loaded I am very happy with it. However, I have noticed quite a bit of play in the slide. If I grab the muzzle I can 'wiggle' it side to side on the frame. Even grabbing it around the receiver and moving it I can actually see a gap in the slide-to-frame fit back at the rear of the gun. When I clean the gun (usually after every range session) I check the slide, frame, barrel, and extractor for wear marks. I've seen nothing bothersome to date (to this untrained eye). I'd say this isn't normal for a Loaded. Or is it? Should I send it in to Springfield to have them check it out?
