This stainless steel Springfield Armory Mil-spec 1911 pistol has some more advanced features than the G.I. models. For starters, it has a stainless slide and frame, giving it corrosion resistance as well as an attractive finish. It also sports reddish-brown hardwood Cocobolo grips that really stand out against the stainless steel.

The biggest advancements over the G.I. models, though, is in the details. The Mil-Spec 1911 has angled slide serrations rather than straight, giving you a little better grip on the slide. The magazine well is bevelled for faster reloads. The grip safety has been raised slightly to allow for a higher handed grip for more accurate shooting.

The ejection port has been lowered and flared for more consistent and reliable brass ejection, reducing the possibility of jams. Inside, the feed ramp has been polished, and the barrel has been throated.

The sights are military style, but have 3 Hi-Viz dots for faster sight alignment.

If you're looking for a more technologically advanced 1911 that still retains the flavor of the original G.I. pistols, this is the one for you.

Every Springfield Armory 1911 pistol is equipped with a trigger locking device. A key inserted into a hole in the rear grip strap positively locks the trigger, making it impossible for a child to accidentally discharge the gun. This system gives you a choice as to whether or not you need to lock your gun. Unlike trigger locks on other brands of guns, the keyhole is small, so that it doesn't ruin the looks of the gun.

"This is a beautiful pistol...it's just speechless to say how much this gun has been. The 3-dot sights were just bright and very easy to pick up, the stainless finish was strong + smooth, and overall, if u wanna spend more $$$ out of your wallet for like a Kimber or Nighthawk, i say for the cost and reliability....the SA .45 acp Mil-Spec beats it all!!!"

"I carried a 1911 .45 in the service, and it was sure nothing like this! This pistol is a lot more accurate than the one issued to me. It's a great looking gun and it's been 100% reliable. No matter what kind of ammo I feed it the gun goes bang. If I had to get picky about it I'd say they should replace the barrel bushing with the old style guide rod plug. Other than that I'd recommend this gun to anybody."
