The Ronin Operator 1911 is a result of thoroughly modern precision manufacturing and configured as a full-size 5-inch gun available in 9 mm and .45 ACP variants. Sporting a two-tone finish, with a stainless steel forged frame and a forged slide of carbon steel, it pairs classic 1911 features with modern touches. Flats of both the slide and frame are polished, with a matte finish applied to the rest of the pistol. Additionally, the slide features a hot-salt bluing treatment bringing out the lustre of the steel.
Despite its classic aesthetic, everything present on modern 1911s is included. Such features consist of a beavertail grip safety with “memory bump” for solid engagement, a fiber-optic front/tactical rack white-dot rear sight system, as well as an extended safety lever. Rounding out the features are a pair of Crossed Cannon premium laminate wood grips, stainless steel checkered flat mainspring housing, Springfield Armory 2nd Generation Speed Trigger, forward slide serrations and a basepad-equipped magazine (9+1 capacity in the 9 mm model and 8+1 in the .45 ACP).
