Springfield® 1911 Loaded Lightweight Operator® .45 ACP Semi-auto Pistol

In the post-WWII years, as 1911s became increasingly common in the civilian market, shooters and custom shops found new ways to upgrade their .45s. Uncle Sam’s original spec sheet was a one-size fits all. But the 1911-loving public quickly figured out that America’s favorite autoloader could be improved with customization. The Loaded Series from Springfield® brings you the culmination of those lessons. These pistols are loaded with all the features a fine 1911 should have.

The Lightweight Operator variant features a forged aluminum alloy frame in place of the traditional forged steel frame, which trims about 9 ounces off of the total weight—giving it better handling characteristics. In every other way, it's a classic 1911 Loaded Pistol. The ergonomic beavertail grip safety, lightweight delta hammer and extended trigger enhance handling and performance in any situation. If you’re ready for a 1911 that brings you upgraded features without a custom shop price tag, look into the Loaded Series.
