Springfield Armory Custom Shop Professional 45 ACP, $2400

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Buying this package and applying it to the basic Springfield Mil-Spec gun is the equivalent of our test gun, the PC9111 model, $2400. There just isn't much more you can ask from a 1911, in our view. The cost is the sole drawback.

The Professional is a reminder of just how many modifications and refinements can be applied to the 1911 pistol. Adjustable aluminum trigger, flush-mounted slide stop, lowered and flared ejection port, low-mount snag free Novak rearsight, lightweight hammer, extended beavertail grip safety with raised countour, ambidextrous slim-safety, checkered cocobolo wood grips, 20-lpi checkered front strap, and magazine with base pad are some of the modifications evident in this photo.
