Fans of military style firearms will love the American Tactical Imports Firepower Extreme military 1911 .45ACP. As close to the G.I style 1911 .45ACP semi auto pistol that served from WWII up through 1985 when the Beretta M9 replaced it as the standard service pistol in the United States military. The all steel frame and slide add a welcome heft to the pistol and gives a solid feel when firing 230gr FMJ downrange. The mahogany checkered grips only increase the nostalgia of days gone by, and low profile G.I style sights offer low snag potential. The ATI military 1911 in .45ACP is a full size government frame with 5" barrel and will use most aftermarket 1911 magaizines and interchangeability of parts may require some fitting as do most 1911 style pistols on the market.
