Before the iconic Model 1911 ever became famous there was a war being waged. It pitted the Savage Model 1907 against John Moses Browning’s M1911. As history tells us, the M1911 won out and served as our country’s sidearm for decades to come. Now, with the debut of the Savage 1911 is Savage Arms’ first foray into a government-style 1911 chambered in 45 ACP and 9mm with multiple finishes.

The Savage 1911 is built from stainless steel and has a dual recoil spring and machined sear and disconnector. While the look pays homage to the original, the Savage 1911 is built for hard use. From its nitride coated titanium firing pin, to the target crown on the barrel, this 1911 delivers accuracy and reliability. This is Savage.

Overall, they look to have exquisite quality only time on the range will further cement their asking price. As always, let us know all of your thoughts in the Comments below!

not bad looking from the specs well made a nice choice of calibers and proof in the pudding the 1911 one of the most copied pistols in the world
Looks pretty good, and I hope it does well. At this "mid-range" price point, I'd expect front strap checkering, a magwell, and maybe even a skeletonized trigger.

We'll see how it turns out once "REAL" range reports come in...

At that price, these would be great if they were in 10mm as well.
