SW1911 TFP

The Smith and Wesson Model SW1911 TFP is a large-framed pistol chambered in .45 ACP. Originally developed by John M. Browing, the 1911 style is ubiquitous among pistols. The 1911 design traditionally includes all metal construction, a single-action only trigger, manual thumb safety and a grip safety. What makes the SW1911 TFP unique is its inclusion of a titanium firing pin, which is abbreviated in its title.

Other features on the SW1911 TFP include a 5″ barrel and overall length of 8.7″. In addition, it has an stainless steel construction and synthetic checkered grips. The SW1911 TFP also employs a skeletonized trigger and hammer. The SW1911 TFP is also finished in a protective black melonite coating, which is a metallic mineral closely associated with nickel (technically, a telluride of nickel). The SW1911 TFP holds an 8-round magazine.

S&W recommends the SW1911 TFP for law enforcement and home protection applications.
