I chose this because Springfield Armory makes great guns and this had good reviews. I had a Springfield 1911 before. I got rid of it and I've been regretting it every since.

Great price on what I wanted

This particular model Springfield Armory 1911 Defender is considered by many experts the best model in its class. In addition, the price point at GrabAgun is the best in the market. I did extensive research, and by far this is the best price for this model whether online or store visit. Simply put, a fantastic gun for the best price available.

Springfield 45 s are great pistols -- Nice reviews good price from GAG
Joseph M on Jul 29, 2019
I wanted a mil-spec 1911. No bells no whistles. Springfield makes quality products.
Elwin I on Jul 29, 2019
Replacing a older 1911, Springfield is a very fine weapon at a fair price
Dennis G on Jul 29, 2019
Solid value for basic 1911. I really like the clean subdued look and feel of this mil-spec offering!
Doyle H on Jul 28, 2019
Needed a well made 1911 and this fit the budget and had all the features I wanted (Mil-Spec features with 3dot sights) will go great with my M1 garand and other ww2 era rifles and pistols without spending too much
Brandon M on Jul 27, 2019
One word ... VALUE!
Robert G on Jul 27, 2019
Everyone needs at least 1 1911 and the Mil-Spec is a great bargain. GAG has the best price and service as well.
Steven M on Jul 24, 2019
I was looking at the low-end 1911s and wanted a GI-type of pistol. The great reputation of Springfield Armory plus 100% positive ratings among 20 purchasers alleviated any trepidations I had buying a less expensive gun. Plus $8 shipping and no cc fee, and my FFL was already in their system. Super easy purchase. Great site for comparing lots of the same kinds of guns. Dealt with them once before on a SW M64 and gun was the cheapest by far and great service.
Gary on Jul 23, 2019
It looks like a quality gun at a rock bottom price. I can't wait to handle it!
Dean B on Jul 23, 2019
Grab a gun has the lowest price I’ve been able to find.
Johnny L on Jul 23, 2019
I like the parkerized finish and military look. ALso, for the price, it cant be beat.
Manford B on Jul 22, 2019

I am a fan of the 1911 platform of semi-auto pistols. I wanted to add a mil-spec .45 to my collection. This was an opportunity for a great deal on a Springfield.

Kevin M on Jun 2, 2019

Joseph R on May 26, 2019
Amazing price can't go wrong. Despite some reviews about grabagun not having products advertised in a friend just a ordered a Springfield defender 1911 and it arrived in great shape in 2 days. I get the same great service I will be a happy camper and a customer for life.
Steve F on May 25, 2019

Will it take 8 rd mags?
Don on May 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this model will also accept 8 round magazines. For best reliability the Wilson 47D is an excellent choice: https://grabagun.com/wilson-match-mag-gov-t-45-8rd-sts.html
Is the rear sight drift adjustable?
Stephen on Jul 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You can tap it right or left, but there are no adjustment screws. I drifted mine out and put a Burris Fastfire III in and I'm quite happy with it. The sight was in there very tight. It took some blows to drive it out.
Is the front sight staked or dove tailed?
Jimmy on Jun 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: it is staked and mine came off with my first box of ammo. springfield sent a replacement sight which I am having installed and soldered. jerry
Where is it manufactured?
carl on Jun 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Mine says it’s made in Geneseo, Illinois
Does it come with the infamous SA ILS lock in the back. The one with the 2 holes for a key?
Jose on Aug 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No ILS lock, excellent handgun, not so excellent finish. Also posted a slightly more detailed review.
series 70 or 80?
Jim on May 28, 2019
Does this qualify for the Springfield Armory "Gear Up" promotion?
Irv on Jul 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Their website lists the firearms that qualify for "gear up" The defender series is not on that list.

Plesently Surprized
Did not expect this level of Quality and Accuracy that I received in this purchase of the Springfield Defender 1911. The price was right and I'm really happy with this purchase. I have only put 250 Rds. through it but my gut tells me this weapon is going to last a long time.

Super nice 1911
As usual, very happy with the service from Grabagun. Excellent prices, great service and fast shipping. I am very satisfied with the Springer 1911 Defender. The pistol is is pretty darn impressive and at this price a super deal. The fit and finish is great. Fired 100rds of 230gr fmj and 10 rds of 185gr xtp with zero issues. Glad I picked this 1911 up!

Great gun
After only having compact carry guns, It was awesome to feel this 1911 in my hand. The trigger is great and it shoots smoother then my 9 mm carry guns!

Grabagun comes through again!
Just received the Springfield Defender 1911 and wanted to put some rounds through it before a review. It fired every round without issue, about 100 rounds FMJ 230 gr. and 15 rounds JHP 230 gr. I only have a small number of handguns, but half of them have come from Grabagun. I am very pleased with the courteous, prompt attention I get from the staff whenever I have a question, and the prices are some of the best around.

Finally got my 1911...
Not really surprised at the quality, being a Springfield, but blown away by how much it looks, handles, and shoots so much like the 1911 I fired while in the military. Super tight, soaks up the recoil, and a real tack driver. With this being one of many firearms purchased through Grab a Gun it was also no surprise that my purchase went down by the numbers. Always enjoy stopping off in person to pick up, great people behind the counter.

Basic standard 1911 full size
There's not much to say as far as features. It's as basic as possible unless 3-dot sights are considered a bonus. It feels well built and and the fitment of parts is correct. Grips are real wood. I've fired 50 rounds without issues. Comes with one steel magazine.

Springfield Armory Defender 1911 Mil-Spec Parkerized .45 ACP Features

The Springfield Armory Mil-Spec, like all Springfield 1911s, features a carbon steel frame and slide that is fully forged, rather than cast, for the utmost durability. The 5-inch Match Grade stainless steel barrel is also forged for lifetimes of use. The slide has slanted serrations and the mainspring housing is the original arched style found on GI issue 1911-A1s. The Mil-Spec 1911 also features fixed 3-dot sights, a lowered and flared ejection port, and a single-sided thumb safety. Each Mil-Spec comes with fully-checkered wood grips, unique to this Defenders Series model. This classic 1911 has a Parkerized finish to combat corrosion, and comes with one 7-round magazine.
