yup that's it. I personally like the adjustable sights on the 9134lp but you may not.

mine is accurate. checkout this 20 shot group. 7 yards standing.

OP, everything you said is correct, it's mainly your choice of 3-dot combat sights or adjustable target sights.
I am on the target sights side for 1911's as well.

Both are in Springfield's Loaded series, so not much difference as far as features.
Both on roster, both good to go...might be hard to find.

Agreed, but it seems like just after I got mine (in December) there was a bunch released so I would be looking on Gunbroker. I paid 910 shipped for mine, a used 9134 and that was the best price at that time I could find, but saw one with no bids about a week ago for under 800. Now is a good time to buy I think. The 9130 is most likely a "N" marked gun, which may or may not be bad but I bought one of those at the same time as the 9134 and it was definitely not as nicely fit as the NM gun, but that isn't saying all are that way.

every time I see a 9134 it has a NM serial. these usually are fitted in the USA instead of Brazil.

Yes, from what I have seen is the 9134s are NMs and the 9130s are Brazil assembled. Once again, this really doesn't make a huge difference and Springfield will handle any issue if one should arise. So...find a good deal for either the fixed sight or adjustable (whichever u prefer) and go for it! Great guns.

thanks a bunch guys... I found a few of both in the 850 to 900 range online... id rather go with a shop here in my city but man $1200 dallors when i can get it almost 400 cheaper... makes it really hard you know... and as for the sights i think i would go for the adjustable... only because its an added feature... might as well get the most when it cost the same... might send it to W/C to get a trigger job... i cant say for anything else on the springfield cause i havent touched it... but so far every handgun ive ever held ive never liked stock trigger... my finger is delicate lol...

In the end you wont end up saving $350 even if you find one for $850 online vs. $1200 at a local shop. (Herb Bauer? :43:)

Figure $25 to $45 average for shipping off GunBroker, Some sellers charge $10 to $20 extra to ship to CA, (For the CFLC), and then you have to pay the FFL transfer fee. ($35 to $150+ in Fresno)

So, if you stick to the low end of the above you will still save about $280...just not $400. I agree with this pricing online is the way to go, just wanted to make sure you where aware of the other costs that come with online buys.

(PS, 9mm 1911 is my favorite platform right now, I shoot mine more than anything else in my safe these days)

I paid $939 for a PI9134LP, plus transfer fee, plus interstate tax, and whatever else. In the end, I was in it for over a grand, but since the 9134's were seemingly hard to come by at the time, I had no problem paying it.

...That's for PPT sales is CA only. Since you having it shipped in the FFL can charge any Transfer fee they want.

Good luck and let us know how it turns out.
