The page you quoted is not quite true. The NM serial numbered pistols are Imbel forged frames. The others are not, and no, NM does not stand for national match! It was just their serial numbering process.

I have 2 SA NM serialized pistols that I would put up against any Colt, and they are heads and shoulders above a RI.
