The Springfield Professional 1911 pistol is now being offered in 9mm. The .45 ACP version of the gun is noted for winning the FBI Hostage Rescue Team (HRT) pistol contract back in 1998.
Built by Springfield’s legendary Custom Shop, the Springfield Professional sports a custom slide and national match frame; custom national match barrel; lowered and flared ejection port; speed trigger with a 4.5-pound trigger pull; Novak rear and dovetail front sight with 3 dot tritium inserts; checkered Cocobolo grips; 20 lpi front strap checkering; and much more.
“The Springfield Armory Custom Shop is a collection of over 200 years of experience trying to reach the absolute pinnacle of what custom 1911 gunsmithing is,” Springfield Custom Shop Pistolsmith Troy Schulz said in a press release. “What we’re ultimately aiming for is absolute perfection.”
“I like it to look like a work of art, but I also want it to function like a work of art,” Springfield Custom Shop Team Leader Don Stogsdill added.
MSRP on the Springfield Professional is $3,295. See the features below, along with a video that gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the Springfield Custom Shop.
