The next 28 years firmly established Springfield Armory as the leading manufacturer of 1911s, the standard by which all other 1911s are judged today. After 102 years and untold billions of rounds of .45ACP, American shooters, law enforcement and elite military units the world over still rely on the 1911 in their daily work.
