Manufacturer’s Description

The Journeyman is a 1911-style pistol chambered in .45 ACP and built by Schuetzen Pistol Works, a division of Olympic Arms. It’s built on a full-size frame with a shortened (4″), 416 stainless steel barrel. Features include:

  • A satin bead blast finish on the frame;
  • a black parkerized finish on the slide;
  • a round frame trigger guard;
  • double-diamond, checkered, exotic wood grips.

Additional features found on the Journeyman and all Olympic 1911s include:

  • A matched frame and slide;
  • an individually fitted and head-spaced barrel;
  • a complete ramp and throat job;
  • a lowered and widened ejection port;

  • a dovetail front sight; and
  • a full length guide rod.

The parts are hand selected and fitted. You can choose your mainspring housing and rear sight at no extra charge. The mainspring housing is Smith & Alexander, checkered to 20 LPI with the choice of flat or arched. For your rear sight, you can choose LPA adjustable or Heinie Slant-pro fixed.

Olympic says every pistol is test-fired with military hardball, major power factor LSWC and JHP ammunition.
