Even though the 50GI gets most of the attention
we haven’t forgotten about the .45ACP fans. The M1 is also available solely
as a .45ACP as well for those who have large supplies of .45ACP ammo or simply
want the finest .45ACP 1911 available. The 45M1 uses the very same components
as the 50GI M1 and you get the benefits of an extra heavy match quality barrel
due to it having the same outside diameter as the 50GI with a smaller bore size.
The slide is also lighter by design which makes the 45M1 a very low recoiling,
fast and sweet shooting pistol. Another major improvement is the magazine. Standard
1911 mags have always been a weak point due to the original design which limits
the thickness of the metal used. Our .45 magazines are made specifically
for the M1 and are made of heavier gage steel for increased strength and have
same reliability features as our 50GI mags. The icing on the cake is the ability
to convert your 45M1 to a 50GI with nothing more than a barrel and magazine swap
when you are ready to step up to 50GI power.
These features combine to make the 45M1 worth taking a closer look at, compare
