Savage is now in the M1911 pistol business with a range of .45 ACP and 9 mm Luger models that appear quite well-executed and display styling cues in concert with the company’s cutting-edge image.
Built on a forged stainless-steel frame and slide, the Savage 1911 is available with or without an accessory rail and in either all-stainless, black-nitride or two-tone finishes. Broadly spaced slide serrations and a relief cut at the top front of the slide lend a modern appearance to the classic John Browning design.
Details include: bilateral slide-lock safety levers; a lowered and flared ejection port; a billet-machined barrel with 11-degree target crown; dual recoil springs with a G.I.-style guide rod and barrel bushing; machined tool-steel sear and disconnector; nitrided titanium firing pin; Novak Lo-Mount tritium bar rear sight and tritium Mega Dot front sight; and VZ Grips G10 stocks. Magazine capacities are eight (.45 ACP) or 10 (9 mm Luger) rounds.
MSRP starts at $1,500. For more information, visit savagearms.com.
