•Classic 1911 design, 5" Government model.
•Hand fit and assembled by master pistolsmiths.
•Front and rear cocking serrations.
•Famous Greek phrase "Molon Labe" in Greek letters, laser engraved on the left side of the slide. Translated as "Come and Take Them" written by Plutarch that King Leonidas of the Spartans replied "Molon Labe" in response to the Persian army's demand that the Spartans lay down their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 B.C. Since then, Molon labe has frequently been used by many leaders in order to express an army's or nation's determination to not surrender.
•The famous Spartan battle helmet is engraved in the custom G10 grips.
•Ed Brown's custom snakeskin treatment on the front strap and mainspring housing for both comfort and a rock-solid grip in any situation (without chewing up your hands in long hours/days of training).
•Tritium front night sight. Having tritium only in the front sight allows for faster and more reflexive close quarters response in low-light situations.
•Wide (.156) notch, plain black rear sight by 10-8 Performance. The wide notch provides faster front sight acquisition at typical handgun fighting distances. It's also great for older shooters whose eyes may not be quite as sharp as they once were. The rear of the sight is serrated to prevent glare across the back of the rear sight.
•Solid aluminum trigger.
•Slide stop is serrated on bottom, which matches serrations on top of slide stop.
•Ed Brown's famous high-rise beavertail grip safety with memory grooves.
•Ed Brown Maxi-well magazine funnel for rapid magazine changes - because at pistol fighting distances time matters.
•Single side thumb safety is standard, ambi safety optional so you can shoot effectively with either hand.
•Pistol is finished with Ed Brown's high quality black "Gen III" coating for appearance and wear resistance.
