The Loaded 1911 family just got a little bigger.

The new Springfield Armory® 1911 Loaded Parkerized pistol is now available with Crimson Trace® Lasergrips® in 45ACP.

Optimized for serious defensive use, the Parkerized finish is designed to stand up to the rigors of daily carry and is anti-reflective. With its full-size frame, barrel and slide this Laser-equipped 1911 makes an excellent home-defense option too.

Like all of the Loaded family models, the Parkerized finish versions are built for reliable performance. A five-inch stainless match-grade barrel is carefully fit to a bushing and forged carbon steel frame and slide for maximum reliability and accuracy. For the shooter wanting to turn down the bling, this is the finish of choice.

Tradition, Meet Technology

This new model is the marriage of tradition with life-saving technology. Its Crimson Trace® Lasergrips® provide fast, instinctive and effective low-light sighting options.

With the laser in place, your reaction time and threat response improves.

Running on Pure Instinct

When switched on and in stand-by mode, an instinctive activation button ignites the laser. Assume a firing grip and the laser is automatically projected downrange, showing you exactly where the bullet will impact.

Very low in profile, the Lasergrip is virtually unnoticeable and has little impact on holster selection - you can choose your favorite full-size 1911 model holster and go to work. And as a self-defense model, the Loaded Parkerized comes standard with three-dot Tritium combat sights, giving you an additional low-light aiming option.

It's ready to go - out of the box, with everything you need for serious low/no light self-defense. This new laser-enabled pistol redefines "loaded."

Features for All

And "Loaded" doesn’t just refer to this Lasergrips®-equipped model. Springfield Armory® offers Loaded sizes and configurations for many different needs.

There are now six different models in the Loaded series, each with its unique set of features, for example:

  • The LB Operator® offers an enhanced model featuring an extended mag well
  • The Lightweight Operator® uses a forged, aluminum-alloy frame to shave extra weight for concealed carry applications
  • The traditional Parkerized and Stainless Steel models are forged with a traditional dust cover
  • The Marine Corps Operator®, LB Operator® and Lightweight Operator® models include Picatinny rails for more tactical use

But it doesn't end there - we're loading up these models with premium features such as ambidextrous thumb safeties, extended beavertail grip safeties with memory bumps, lightweight delta hammers and extended triggers. Two magazines and a high-quality polymer briefcase round out the full Loaded package.
