Our Assessment: This is a great tactical pistol with a skeletonized trigger and hammer, beavertail extended grip safety, extended thumb safety, Dawson fiber optic front sight, angled rear slide serrations, 25 LPI checkered frontstrap, and a picatinny rail. This pistol also was made without the Springfield Internal Locking System (ILS) on the mainspring housing. With its all-steel construction and 9mm chambering, recoil should be minimal and fast follow-up shots easy. The sights are quick pointing and easily acquirable. The pistol is in Excellent condition and comes with its original case, ready for carry, competition or recreational target shooting. Without going the fully custom route, this is about the best 1911 you can get. Please see our photos and good luck
