    Most accurate of my Springers.
    This PX9109LP is sweet as Tupelo honey.

    Sweet looking Springer, I have the RO in 9mm & love it! Can't decide on my next Springer?
    I'm thinking of the loaded parkerized .45 ( as pictured ) or the TRP, time will tell!!

    Great pistol!

    The most accurate Springer I own is my Trophy Match.

    If you are going for one that also makes a good CC I suggest one like my Range Officer Compact 45.
    It is fairly easily concealed and packs that 45 cal punch without being too heavy.

    Novak cut, fixed sights but if you want adjustable it looks easy to switch out.

    Beautiful loaded. I've had the same luck with accuracy. It's a tack driver ....here is mine [​IMG]

    Doing a bit of research the rear sight can be adjusted for windage.

    I thought by the looks of it it probably could for windage but I prefer sights that can be adjusted for elevation too so if I ever get 1 I'll see about changing the sights. Every gun I've ever had with fixed sights didn't hit where I aimed,might be because of me though not sure.

    I love my Loaded too. But I went with the stainless model. If sights are a concern, just an FYI. The stainless model comes standard with 3 dot sights. The loaded parkerized comes with night sights standard.[​IMG]

    I've never seen the recover. It doesn't look bad in the picture then again maybe it's just the gun making the recover look good. Does it feel any different in your opinion rather than stock grips? Wrap around but felt too bulky

    About the same thickness as stock grips. It does add texture to the front strap,which is not on the frame.

    It sure is a beautiful gun. Eventually I'm going to have to get a stainless for the safe
