The Astro Saber's were still programmed utilizing RSS weren't they or CPS? I think my buddy said the early ones were RSS but the later were CPS.

They were during the transition period form DOS based RSS to Windows based CPS. Technically, CPS should read the radio regardless of whether or not the DOS RSS was used on it. Just like typical Motorola SUs, legacy support in new software revisions but once the newer software has been used to write a codeplug to the radio you are pretty much married to the newer revision.
