The 1911 Spartan is all stainless steel in oil-rubbed bronze PVD finish. The slide is engraved with the Greek phrase "MOLON LABE" ("Come and take them") while the custom grips feature the inlaid Spartan helmet. The legendary 1911 design has been brought into the 21st century with the refinement today's shooters demand. The SIG SAUER 1911 proves that close tolerances equal complete reliability and need not be incompatible in an off-the-shelf pistol. The pistol features clean, distinct lines that American shooters have embraced, while retaining the crisp trigger pull, classic ergonomics, and exceptional accuracy they expect.
