Our Assessment: This is a great tactical pistol with a skeletonized trigger and hammer, beavertail extended grip safety, ambidextrous thumb safety, full-length guide-rod, target night sights, forward slide serrations, beveled extended magazine well, and a picatinny rail. With its all-steel construction and rail, recoil should be minimal and fast follow-up shots easy. The target/night sights will allow you precisely zero the gun for your intended use and the tritium lamps are a nice touch. The pistol is in Excellent condition and comes with its original box, 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!
