View Full Version : Springfield 1911 Loaded coupon prices a good deal?

The coupon that came with my new SA 1911 has one time only prices for magazines, holsters and other stuff. I'm just wondering if there'e anything worth getting.
Stuff I was considering:

7 rd. blued mags are 9.00
10 rd. single stack mags are 14.00 (blued) 19.00 (stainless)
Nylon holster with mag pouch 14.00
Otis pistol cleaning kit 19.00
leather holster 34.00

barrel bushing wrench, steel 3.00 (Do I need one for a Trophy Match .45?)

seems like pretty good prices on the mags, too bad there are no stainless 7rd. mags that match the ones that came with the gun on the list...

I personally don't see any difference it makes with the color of the magazine. ;)
I use all my mags in all my 1911's regardless of blue or stainless. If they work, that's all that matters. Once they're in the gun, you can't see what color they are. Unless you're aiming at a fashionista, they won't care either. "Stop! That magazine doesn't go with that gun! The color is all wrong!" Doubtful. :)

Pretty good deals actually. I was looking more for 8-rounders but 7 were so cheap with this coupon I couldn't pass it up. I picked up the leather holster which was quite nice for $34.00 (stiff when new but smooth after breaking in), two 7-rounders, and two 10-rounders. 10-rounders were made by Promag (not the best looking in the world but functioned fine) and 7-rounders were not branded, the same as the ones that my 1911 came with. I also got the barrel bushing wrench. Waste of $3 if you ask me since I can already take it out with my bare hands.

The $9 mags are the best deal. They are Metalform mags and work excellent too :)

I ordered a few mags with my SA coupon. Cheap and OEM, all of them work great.

Thanks, I'll order several. especially thanks for the pic of the holster, looks like a very good deal for 34.00.

I am new to the SA design, does anyone know if the barrel wrench is required for guns with the "1 piece guide rod" Mine is a trophy match and the guide rod is released with an allen wrench, not by pushing a button like a series 80 colt..
