    From their website:

    .45 GI

    Mil-Spec

    Loaded

    I have a Mil-Spec. I changed the hammer and beaver tail. It shoots just as well as the over-priced 1911's.

    The GI is a replica of the 1911 carried by GI's in WWII.

    The Mil-Spec is based on the current 1911 US military spec which includes a few changes after WWII. Someone else can detail differences from the GI model.

    The "loaded" model includes a few of the common after-market upgrades that many 1911 owners add to their 1911's such as Novak sights, beaver-tail grip safety, ambidextrous thumb safety and extended safety levers. The SA website lists all of the differences between the loaded model and the Mil-Spec model.
