    1911 Compact

    I just bought a used SA Compact 1911 with no box, manual, etc. I don't have much info on this thing - apparently they don't make it any more. To me it looks like a Mil-Spec with a 4" barrel and a shortened butt like a Colt Officer's Model. It has a steel frame, matt finish and a 2 piece recoil spring guide. It's a heavy li'l thing and shoots good. A previous owner had a Wilson hammer, sear, trigger and spring set installed. Anyone else on the forum have one of these and if so can you give some history, opinions, etc?
    Thanks - Tom

    I guess I'll answer my own question. SA advised that it is a Model PB9501 and was manufactured in Oct of 1994. It is a Champion sized model - short butt with 6 round magazine, a 4" barrel and a steel frame. Apparently they were made in 2 basic configurations. Mine is made on the Mil-Spec platform. The 2 piece, full-lengh recoil spring guide has been adapted from other SA 1911 parts and did not come standard with the gun. It also has aftermarket hammer, trigger and sear, supposedly Wilson.

    Hi Rman I wish I could have helped you but I never seen one in person. I have never handled one and know nothing about them. Good luck with yours.

    Thanks Baldy - good to hear from you again. I've been so busy I've been laying off the forums for a while.
