After the rampant inflation of the 1970s, when GI .45's and Colts shot up from $100 apiece to the $400 - $500 range, several companies threw their 1911 hats into the ring for an economical alternative to the too-pricey-by-then Colt types. Auto Ordnance and Olympic Arms came on with decent clones, but their products were all 'way too rough in terms of feed, fit, and function. Enter Springfield Armory in 1985 with a reliable and accurate out-of-the-box 1911 for about half what the Colts were selling for, and consistent excellence in construction and performance against the other rough-shod clones. Those 1980s pistols were made in Geneseo, Illinois and they command premium prices. No one until now has made a competitor for our favorite, the Colt Lightweight Commander. This Springfield Armory Imbel Brazil GI Lightweight Champion changes all that, but continues the GI type tradition, with faithful replication of the best elements of World War II durable Parkerized armory finish. All of Springfield Armory's G.I. Models, the company explains, are built with a forged frame, slide and barrel and include low profile military sights, standard magazine well and spur hammer, standard ejection port, arched mainspring housing with lanyard loop, vertical slide serrations, hardwood U.S. grips and titanium firing pin. Note the one-piece guide rod; this not only ensures accuracy, it ensures unfailing performance in this lightweight powerhouse. Package includes one magazine, belt holster and cable lock. Other specs are Single Action Only pistol, caliber .45 ACP, 4 3/4 inch barrel, 7 + 1 Magazine included, total of one magazine only; Thumb Safety, Grip Safety, firing pin block safety, and internal mainspring lock with two keys; Double Diamond Brazilian Walnut grips; low profile military sights; weight 30.6 ounces empty. We're offering the Imbel / Springfield Armory .45 GI Lightweight Champion Parkerized pistol, factory number PW9143LP, in the photo, or one of its identical mates for only $539.95. Not transferable to civilians in California, the District of Columbia, or Massachusetts.

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony.
GA Pay buyers are NOT charged until we confirm we have the item and are ready to ship it. The same thing is true for phone-in, fax-in, and mail-in payments. In this respect, and in several others, Guns America outshines all its competitors. This is the best firearms website there is, hands down.
