I got my Loaded Springfield in a trade, and I really like it. It shoots every bit as well as my Colt, which has had some work done to it over the years, and it is a really good overall package.
It came with a full length guide rod, which I immediately pulled out and replaced with a standard one.
Mine will be going in to Dane sometime for him to do a bevel/meltdown of the sharp edges, and a reliability job for good measure, but other than that, I don't see what else it would need. The gun has been reliable thusfar, and the only problem I had was the rear sight set screw wasn't tightened down. I'd buy another one without hesitation.
