The 1911 Mil-Spec is built on a full-size frame and slide with a match grade, carbon steel parkerized 5 barrel. Its slide features rear slanted serrations. The mainspring housing is the original arched style found on GI issue 1911-A1s, but it includes the Springfield Armory I.L.S. This pistol also has a standard spur hammer and standard grip safety. The single-sided, non-extended thumb safety and short military combat trigger are true to the original 1911-A1 design. Each Mil-Spec comes with a beautiful pair of cross-cannon emblazoned Cocobolo grips that are held in place with slotted grip screws.
