Our Assessment: Colt’s 1911 served the United States military through two World Wars and several other conflicts, is still in use by some units today, and has become popular with law enforcement, competitors, and recreational shooters across the nation. The design has seen some updates including a firing-pin block safety, higher-profile sights, and more ergonomic grips, but the basic design and fantastic trigger remain the same after more than a century. This one is a member of the Heritage series and was an exclusive for Davidsons. A tribute to the revered Commercial Government Model pistols of the past, the 1911 Classic features the Series 70 firing system and rollmarks, national match barrel, staked on front sights, and spurred hammer. The pistol comes chambered in .38 Super. Additionally, Baron Engraving worked over each gun with custom scroll engraving. The exclusive offerings feature gold-plating on the hammer, grip screws, mag release and slide. This is a beautiful pistol in high condition and is a great addition to a Colt or 1911 collection.
