Springfield Armory Professional Now in 9 mm

posted on March 8, 2018

The pistol that earned Springfield Armory’s Custom Shop the FBI’s coveted Hostage Rescue Team pistol contract—the Professional Model in .45 ACP—is now available in 9 mm.



Available with or without a rail, each pistol is hand-built by master Springfield Armory pistolsmiths. So what makes a custom-shop pistol “custom”? For starters, take a look below at the long list of specifications on these new Professional 1911s, which are offered with or without a rail.

  

“The Springfield Armory Custom Shop is a collection of over 200 years of experience trying to reach the absolute pinnacle of what custom 1911 gunsmithing is,” said Springfield Armory Custom Shop pistolsmith Troy Schulz. “What we’re ultimately aiming for is absolute perfection.” 

Oftentimes these craftsmen rely on “feel,” something that can’t be duplicated by a machining process, and earned through many years of dedication to the platform.

“I like it to look like a work of art, but I also want it to function like a work of art,” explained Don Stogsdill, team leader of the Custom Shop, who boasts 25 years of experience at Springfield Armory.
