"The demand for our 1911 models has always been strong for Magnum Research." stated Jim Tertin, director of manufacturing for Magnum Research. "So we decided to dress it up, and with the combination of the crisp trigger pull and the accuracy, this will be a very fun gun to shoot. It looks good, fits well in your hand and with stainless steel you can expect to be able to pass it down to your son or daughter."
