Over a century after its introduction, and the 1911 is still a top war fighter, self-defense and target pistol. The original specifications were rather vanilla but man do they work! Competitive shooters and gunsmiths took John Browning’s design and spawned an entirely new generation of pistols.
Springfield Armory’s Loaded Series honors this tradition with models that have the best upgrades and custom packages. Models feature extended ambidextrous thumb safeties, a traditional beavertail grip safety with ergonomic enhancements, lightweight delta hammers and extended triggers to enhance handling and performance regardless of your mission—target, IPSIC, IDPA, Personal Defense or combat. Customization happens for a reason; not every feature does all jobs. Understanding this principle, Springfield Armory is offering the Loaded Series with a diverse lineup to allow you to pick the model with features most desirable to your intended course of fire and personal preference in aesthetics.
If you’re ready for a 1911 that brings you upgraded features without a custom shop price tag, look into the Loaded Series.
