    No. It's profoundly black. The flat sides of the pistol are polished to glass smoothness - all other surfaces are parkerized.

    I'd never seen a pistol with this finish before I bought this one. I called Springfield and they said it was a typical Mil-Spec Ultra-compact - nothing special.

    The gun shop I bought it from claimed they had done nothing to it. It was new when I bought it.

    I've been lucky - in spite of all the horror stories of short 1911's being unreliable, this one handles hollow-point as easy as FMJ.

    Yes, U are lucky. I don't think I would ever try a small 1911 like that after all the bad things I've read about them...

    If I ever win the lottery

    I know we all say that.... BUT!

    I have two 1911's on my list of shall and got to have.

    Springfield Amory Professional


    The .50 GI




    .50 GI Photo Gallery

    An old preacher, used to drive around Texas with his Bible, naturally, and also a .45 Model 1911. Someone who did not understand Bibles and guns are not mutually exclusive asked, "Why in the world do you carry that .45?" The wise old preacher never missed a beat and replied, "Because they don't make a .50!" They didn't then, but they certainly do now, and if that old preacher was still roaming around in his pickup, I would just wager that .45 would be replaced by the latest 1911-style semiautomatic, the Guncrafter Industries .50 GI..... if he could have afforded it...

    YMMV

    It gives the front of the gun weight and reduces recoil. Nighthawk makes a gun like that too - it supposedly makes a difference...

    I just re-read the post - I though the question was about the piece attached to the barrel...

    Is that technically just a big "bushing" on the barrel?

    I was talking about the metal rod thing UNDER the barrel, but your right, the thing at the end of the barrel is ugly too.

    Yes it is a long dust cover STI in 40 S&W. (5"). It's mainly a competition gun for me. I am really happy with the gun. It replaced a Para Ordinance 45 which I also liked but the STI starting with 20 rounds worked better for USPSA.

    I would guess the round count at 25-30K. The gun shoots as well as it did from day one. The only issue to date is the gun started double and triple. The issue should be solved shortly with a new hammer and sear..

    2 thumbs up - But the Single Stack 1911 is my first love.
