    Savage missed the mark!
    Savage has always represented great value and affordability for us common folk. I have nice Winchesters, Remingtons, Brownings, Colts, S&W’s, Rugers etc. but Savage was my first gun as a young man, so I always root for the underdog. I realize inflation has changed prices, but they should offer something more affordable. If they did this and the gun was up to snuff then they might make a headway into the overly saturated market.

    I found quite a FEW 1911’s for 600 to 850 that’ll shoot the lights out … from a Local Firearms Dealer… they’re in the safe now !

    Real good looking too …

    And YES .. I’m a SUCKER for those SHINY SS 45’s … just sit one aside for me… what can I say ???

  • Brian Holland December 22, 2022, 12:08 pm

    For that money article needs to state where and how parts are made, DW for that money is barstock and Great warranty. You can’t just come into the 1911 market at 1500 with nothing special like maybe half inch moa at 25 yards or lights cigs when empty.Why not buy an sds for 359 send it to your gunsmith for mim swap and trigger job and your still out under 1000.SHOW ME THE MONEY!

      The savage is litterally in a small crowd of 1911’s with zero mim parts bro billet machined everything even the sear and the firing pin is titanium.

  • The Doc December 22, 2022, 2:38 am

    So how much MIM are we talking about? At least the frame and slide are billet forged. But for that kind of money, I’ll buy a Dan Wesson. I will say, however, that all-stainless model is sexy.

    • michael whalen January 29, 2023, 3:03 am

      zero mim, machined billet everything, including the sear, titanium nitride coated firing pin and dual rate recoil spring so as much as i love the dw’s they are not built as well as this savage, atleast from a 100percent materials quality stand point.

  • D Bear December 22, 2022, 12:42 am

    You get what you pay for. If you want a $700 1911, RIA or EAA has your gun. However, if you want to compete with the big guys, you need a superior firearm. That’s going to cost more than a factory standard gun. Sorry if you can’t handle that fact

  • Gunsmithlee December 21, 2022, 8:25 pm

    Kinda a saturated market place…. why…. do they really think they stand out over the fifty other companies ahead of them. I say bad idea, stick with rifles…

  • Dano December 21, 2022, 7:52 pm

    Not really a surprise.

    How many companies make 1911s now?

    I remember back in the 80s S&W used to dis on 1911s. Now they make em.

    Before it’s over we’ll probably be seeing 1911s from Henry, Charter Arms, Marlin and KelTek.

    I think I’ll wait until Weatherby gets on the money train.
    Just think…..a belted .45 ACP cartridge. Wowsers!

    • survivor50 December 22, 2022, 9:30 pm

      WAIT … KelTec… Don’t BLASPHEME here !!!

    • Jake December 23, 2022, 11:18 am

      Don’t know about the others but Marlin is now part of Ruger and they have 1911’s already.

  • jerry December 21, 2022, 7:34 pm

    I did not see any bragging about “made in USA.” Some of us commentators assumed made in USA. What is the country of origin? I missed that in the article. We have Colt. We used to have Remington, Para USA and Auto Ordnance. Ruger made 1911s for awhile. Do they now? Most Springfield Armory 1911s are assembled in the US but the parts come from Brazil. Where does the Savage come from? Just askin’.

    • michael whalen January 29, 2023, 3:06 am

      100percent machined billet everything down to the sear right there in Massachusetts. It’s not Savages fault that Massachusetts isn’t america.

  • Rick December 21, 2022, 5:15 pm

    Come on, way too much $$$. Build a decent American made 1911 for $699!!!

  • bison1913 December 21, 2022, 4:37 pm

    For the cost comparison… I’d rather purchase another Colt.
    Still a nice firearm though.
    Good luck Savage Arms.

  • Bumper December 21, 2022, 2:30 pm

    Allegedly like willie clin’tons trousers, prices often fall.

  • REAL America December 21, 2022, 2:21 pm

    Ironic given Savage darn near beat the Colt 1911 in Military acceptance trials with their model 1907 I believe it was, in .45 ACP.
    A lot of the testers thought the Savage superior to the now iconic 1911

  • Dave Babl December 21, 2022, 1:14 pm

    Keep up the great work producing 1911 computation top of the line pistols

  • Altoids December 21, 2022, 12:19 pm

    Great looking 1911s. Price is not so great.

  • Anthony J Romano December 21, 2022, 11:37 am

    I’d buy a Colt for that kind of money!

    • No Thanks December 21, 2022, 2:01 pm

      Colt can suck it dry too…all greedy pukes.

    • Michael Boyd December 21, 2022, 3:48 pm

      Would the Colt be appreciably better quality?

      • michael whalen January 29, 2023, 3:08 am

        First off what colt? Colt isn’t colt and hasn’t been for some time and second Colt has never built a 1911 to the material quality of this Savage….ever!

    • michael whalen January 29, 2023, 3:20 am

      Colt? What colt? Funny i own and haved owned many a 1911, and i was always a big colt fan, truth be told my colts have never been my best 1911’s never. Originality yes performance sorry charlie.
