Savage Arms® Introduces Iconic Government Model 1911 Pistols

Savage Arms is proud to announce the latest addition to their line of pistols, the Savage 1911 Government Style models. Built for rugged use and unmatched accuracy, Savage’s 1911s bring modern technology to a proven platform and deliver reliability, accuracy, and performance that will stand out among competitive offerings.

“Savage ended 2021 with the introduction of the Stance, a 9mm micro-compact pistol,” said Beth Shimanski, Savage Arms director of marketing. “One year later, in 2022, we are finishing strong once again in the field of firearms with the release of the Savage 1911 Government Style models. We are very excited to introduce this iconic firearm bearing the Savage name.”

This revolutionary firearm is built to the exacting standards of precision and reliability that have come to define Savage Arms across all platforms and categories. With features that offer optimum performance for all shooting enthusiasts, this classic pistol gets the ultimate Savage treatment.

“I have worked in the firearms industry for more than 30 years and began my career as a professional shooter,” said Rob Gates, Savage Arms vice president of sales and marketing. “This Savage 1911 is as real as it gets and shoots better than any 1911 production I’ve handled in my 30+ years in this industry.”

With a look that pays homage to the classic design, the Savage 1911 has a double recoil spring and machined sear and disconnect, a nitride-coated titanium firing pin, and weighs just over 2 LBS with a 5″ long barrel. Finishes range from black melonite to stainless steel and the Savage 1911 is sure to be the leading single action pistol of 2023.

  • 5” stainless steel barrel machined from billet with 11º target crown
