Springfield® 1911 Mil-Spec Defender Series .45 ACP Semi-automatic Handgun
More than a century and untold billions of rounds of .45 ACP after its introduction, American shooters, law enforcement and elite military personnel the world over still rely on the immortal 1911 to get the job done. Whether you're a first-time 1911 owner or a discerning collector, Springfield is the right choice.
Their mil.-spec variant builds on the classic G.I. version with a 5" match-grade stainless barrel, forged carbon steel frame and slide, and a lowered and flared ejection port for more reliable cycling. The slide has slanted serrations, and the mainspring housing is the original arched style found on GI-issue 1911-A1s.
