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 DVC-C model from STI. It features a Dawson front sight, square notched slide-racker rear sight, a 2011 double stack modular grip, 3.9” bull barrel, railed frame, full-length guide rod, skeletonized hammer & trigger, ambidextrous safeties, an indexing bump beavertail safety, and forward & rear slide serrations. This one has been kept in beautiful condition by a previous owner and does not look like it has seen much use at all and comes with a soft case. This would make a great competition gun, carry pistol, or just a simple plinker for those who only want the best, so considering dropping a bid on this STI! Please see our photos and good luck!
