Our Assessment: Springfield Armory has long been one of the finest producers of 1911-style pistols in America and this is no exception. This particular pistol comes packed with features such as angled rear slide serrations, extended beavertail grip safety, skeletonized hammer and trigger, serrated straight mainspring housing, and night sights. This example is in Fine condition and looks like it has seen pretty standard range use, all you need to do is get some magazines. This is a beautiful gun in high condition and would make an excellent addition to any collection, but where it will really shine is in your holster for carrying. Please see our photos and good luck!
