The High Standard M1911 is a 1911-style pistol built on a carbon steel frame with a steel slide, and chambered in .45 ACP or .38 Super. Other features include:

  • a lowered and flared ejection port;
  • a beveled magazine well;
  • checkered walnut grips;
  • fixed, GI-style sights;
  • a flat, serrated mainspring housing; and
  • a parkerized finish.

High Standard builds these guns at its Texas plant, but it also offered a very similar 1911 called the GI 1911. Armscor built that gun in the Philippines, and HIgh Standard and Lipsey’s sold it through Lipsey’s as a Lipsey’s Exclusive. Note: The GI 1911 costs less than the M1911.
