While new manufacturing techniques have made making reliable 1911 pistols smaller and smaller, concealed carry 1911 compact pistols were have been around for years in the form of Commander, Champion, and Officers models. These types of guns have served their purpose well over the years and they continue to do so to this day in the form of guns such as the Springfield Armory Loaded Champion 1911.

The Champion comes with a 4” barrel which is 1/4” smaller than than that found on true Commander type 1911 pistols, but like a Commander, the slide and barrel are matched to a full-size government 1911 frame. The frame is not expanded and the magazines for this gun are still the 7 Round, single-stack government type.

Being that this particular Champion is on the Springfield Armory “Loaded” lineup, it gets a lot of premium upgrades without a premium price tag. The gun is equipped with a High-Hand beavertail grip safety, cross-drilled aluminum match grade trigger, dual-spring setup with full-length guide rod, skeletonized hammer, ambidextrous safety, and more. As the gun is steered toward the concealed carry crowd, it is fitted with 3-Dot combat sights.

These are all obvious external features but the Loaded Champion 1911 pistol also comes with more subtle benefits such as a precision fit forged frame, slide, and barrel, lowered and flared ejection port, loaded chamber indicator, titanium firing pin, and a Carry Bevel treatment around the muzzle of the gun.

As with all Springfield Armory pistols, the Loaded Champion 1911 is often made either the company's U.S. or Brazilian factories but regardless of where it is made each of these guns receive the highly heralded Springfield Armory Lifetime Warranty.
