The Smith and Wesson Model SW1911 is a large-frame pistol chambered in .45 ACP. Originally developed by John M. Browing, the 1911 style is ubiquitous among pistols. The 1911 design traditionally includes an all metal construction, a single-action only trigger, manual thumb safety and a grip safety. And the SW1911 is S&W’s spin on it.
The SW1911 features a 5″ barrel and overall length of 8.7 “. In addition, the SW1911 offers a stainless steel frame, a stainless steel slide, and skeletonized hammer and trigger, which are designed to reduce its weight. Lastly, the SW1911 utilizes an 8-round magazine.
S&W recommends the SW1911 for law enforcement and home protection applications.
