Our Assessment: The 1911 and 1911-A1 pistols served the military of the United States from 1911 to 1985, through two World Wars and the Korean and Vietnam wars. They gained a reputation as a reliable handgun with plenty of stopping power, and are held in high regard by those who have used them. The design is one of the most beloved and has gone through many design changes such as modular frames like this Tactical 4.0 from STI. The Tactical 4.0 was introduced in 2014 in 9mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP and features a red fiber optic front sight, lo-mount style rear sight, a 2011 double stack modular grip, 4.0” bull barrel, railed frame, the recoil master system, skeletonized hammer & trigger, ambidextrous safeties, an indexing bump beavertail safety, and forward & rear slide serrations. This one has seen some use but it is mostly just wear to the finish and it is in great mechanical condition. This would make a great shooter, concealed carry gun, or just a simple plinker for those who only want the best, so considering dropping a bid on this Tactical 4.0!
