Many moons ago, the Savage 1907 and the 1911 fought for supremacy. The US Army, as we all know now, picked John Moses Browning’s 1911 design over the .45 caliber Savage 1907. The rest, as they say is history.
History has taken a new turn as Savage Arms announced today that they’re now in the 1911 business. Savage says “The US Military’s M1911 is now being given the Savage treatment.” They’ve introduced three new models — Melonite, stainless and two-tone — that are available both with and without a rail.
