Designed by John Browning, the Model 1911 was the standard-issue side arm for the United States armed forces from 1911 to 1985 and is still carried by some U.S. forces today. The Model 1911's longevity is due to Browning's often-imitated design, which incorporates the short recoil principle. The M1911 is a single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, and recoil-operated handgun chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge. During World War II, with Colt unable to keep up with the US military's high demand for the firearm, other manufacturers were commissioned to make the 1911 including the 1777-founded, government owned Springfield Arms company. Springfield Armory designed the Trophy Match 1911 for bullseye and action shooting competition. Its accuracy is ensured by its match barrel and bushing and it has all the typical Springfield Loaded features like a skeletonized trigger and hammer and grip and slide serrations. This pistol features rubber grips, an adjustable rear sight, and a 7-round magazine. Its grips, its metal, and its bore are all in very good condition.
