Inspired by the original G.I. 1911 which has served for more than a century with members of the U.S. military, the 1911 Mil-Spec gives you a modern take on a true classic. From its spur hammer to its arched mainspring housing to its three-dot sights and lowered/flared ejection port, the Mil-Spec combines best of the old and the new. Built on a forged frame and slide the Mil-Spec carries on Springfield Armory’s long legacy of quality 1911s. Traditionally styled and built on a full-size frame the Mil-Spec features a match grade barrel and rear slant serrations on the slide. The mainspring housing is the original arched style found on G.I.-issue 1911-A1s, giving you a classic look with modern upgrades for improved performance and reliability. The Defend Your Legacy Series 1911 Mil-Spec pistol is an entry-level defensive handgun that combines G.I.-proven features with Springfield Armory quality and materials science along with a true working mans price. This top-quality G.I.-inspired pistol includes a short military-style trigger, an arched mainspring housing, a spurred hammer and a single 7-round box magazine. Three-dot steel sights and a lowered and flared ejection port ensure modern reliability and performance without breaking the bank.
