My father has a Springfield Armory Officer Size 1911 as his personal workhorse. But I have no idea what model it is. I thought initially it was a G.I. but it has a bull barrel and no U.S. grips and its not a mil spec because it has the low g.I. sights. Any ideas?

That's why I'm thinking g.I.
But that bull barrel is throwing me off.

Most compacts have bull barrels.

Hmm. Sorry guys. Never owned a 1911 that wasn't a Government Model :-)

I was thinking the Champion....maybe a early version of it...I have the Champion, bull barrel, GI sights. Looks very similar to mine.
