Springfield Armory Loaded .45 stainless 1911 pistol with low profile combat sights

This 1911 is made for IPSC or IDPA shooting, or for defense. It features low-profile 3 dot combat sights. The rounded edges on the sights won't snag clothing.

The rounded edges on this stainless pistol are bead-blasted, while the flat areas are shiney, giving it a really striking look. Cocobolo hardwood grips round out the pistol's appearance.

An ambidextrous safety makes this 1911 easy for left-handed shooters to use, as well as making it easier for righties to shoot weak-handed.

Like all Springfield Armory 1911's, this one has a skeletonized trigger with overtravel adjustment, and a barrel bushing for fast takedown.

With all of these features, plus a lifetime warranty, and a relatively low price, what's not to like?

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.

"I have shot many semi auto pistols and when I shot my new ss model it hit right on the spot out of the box. Have had other 45's could not hit a man size target at 25 yards I keep about a 2" group free hand at 25 with this one. I have also put my para hawg9 in the safe and this is my new carry pistol.Have a CCL like all that can should."

"I just bought my dream gun tonight. I shot about 250 rounds to start GP, short for General Patton, off slowly. I name all my guns and this one is named after my WWII hero. GP handled very smoothly and had no problems. I have been shooting mostly Glock 17,19 and my other new purchase is the Beretta 92FS INox. All handle well, but my favorite is the 1911. The ambidextrous safety is great for me, since I am a lefty. Beautiful, smooth and sleek and just oozing with power. I look forward to many hours of shooting with my 1911, Springfield."

"I bought this pistol over 6 years ago. The price is almost double now. I have shot it quite a bit but it still looks new. I absolutely trust it for any occasion. When I am in the woods I have four solids followed by 3 hollow points. I like the idea of penetration in case of beastly encounters. When camping and traveling on the road there are 5 hollow points followed by 2 solids...and of course the spare mag. I trade lots of guns, but this one is a keeper. Recently I purchased a Rock River 3.5 inch barrel 45...will probably trade for Springfield, SS with the 3.5 inch."

Our Impressions of the Stainless 1911:

This is a really good-looking pistol, although it's pretty basic in terms of features. The low-profile sights are definitely smooth enough to not catch on a pants pocket or jacket when you're drawing. The three dots stand out well, even in bright daylight.

The ambi safety will certainly be a plus for those who need it, although we didn't. Ambidextrous safeties are almost standard issue on all pistols now, so remarking on them is something better left to pistols that don't have them rather than pistols that do have them.

We were pleasantly surprised to find the trigger pull clean and crisp right out of the box, with no "new gun grittiness", and no need to break it in for a good pull weight. Ours measured 4.75 pounds.

The stainless finish was nicely polished. We didn't see any flaws in production that were readily apparent. The overall quality of the pistol is what you'd expect from Springfield Armory. At a retail price of between $750 and $800, it's a very good gun for the money.
