Savage Arms recently announced the addition of 1911 Government Style Models to its handgun line-up.

Built for “tough use and unmatched accuracy,” the new 1911 Government pistols come about a year after Savage introduced the Stance micro-compact 9 mm handgun.

Savage said its new 1911s “bring modern technology to a time-tested platform and deliver reliability, accuracy and performance that will stand out amongst competitive offerings.”


“We’re extremely excited to introduce this iconic firearm bearing the Savage name,” Savage Arms’ Director of Marketing, Beth Shimanski, said about the new 1911 Government Models.

With a look that pays homage to the classic design, the Savage 1911 sports a five-inch barrel machined from billet with 11-degree target crown, dual recoil spring and machined sear and disconnector, nitride-coated titanium firing pin and ambidextrous slide lock safety.

Weighing in at a svelte two pounds, the Savage 1911 has a forged stainless-steel frame and slide and VZ G10 grips. In addition to stainless steel, black melonite and two-tone finishes are available.

As for sights, there is a Novak low-mount adjustable tritium bar rear sight and tritium mega dot glow dome yellow front sight (rail and two-tone versions).

Twelve models are available in 9 mm and .45 Auto. Price ranges from $1,350 to $1,500, depending on model. Go to to learn more.
