Today, most 1911's are fitted with extended and/or ambidextrous thumb safeties, excellent sights of either the tactical or fully adjustable variety, and a beavertail grip safety.
Features include satin chrome finish, LPA "TRT" fully adjustable white dot rear sight with dovetail front sight, front and rear angled serrations, 3-hole trigger and skeleton hammer, lowered and flared ejection port, slightly beveled mag well and beavertail grip safety with memory cut.

The beavertail grip safety is alloy, whereas the slide stop, thumb safety levers, and magazine release button are steel.
