The Springfield 1911 Trophy Match is a semi-automatic large-frame pistol chambered in .45 ACP. The Trophy Match is a high-end 1911 with several match grade features such as a match bull barrel, a lightweight aluminum trigger that sets off the action with a 4.5- to 5-pound pull, adjustable sights, a wide-mouth magazine well for quick mag change, its standard magazines have slam pads, which cushion it if they hit the ground during rapid mag change, and the hammer is skeletalized.
Just like the original 1911A1, it is recoil operated, so the expanding gases that push the projectile out also forces the slide back and by doing so ejects the casing and chambers another round.
It has two safety mechanisms. A grip safety that rests within the beavertail curve below the hammer. The grip safety is automatically engaged when not in use, so it cannot fire unless the trigger is actually pulled. This means no accidental discharges if dropped. The second safety is a ambidextrous manual safety that turns on and off with a flip of a switch.
Springfield recommends the Trophy Match for competitive shooting.
