SA compact 1911 dates.
Hello all,

Just went out to Pro-Armament in OH two days again 1911 shopping. Came home with a SA 1911 compact. Now from the looks of it,it is an older gun. I cannot find any info on these compacts. Its not a ultra compact or micro, or champion. Its a 4" barrel,novak sights, skeleton trigger and hammer, extended beavertail, and magwell added to it.

Anyone know when these were built? Only markings are springfield armory,logo,serial number etc on right side. And Compact CAL.45 on the left.
Sweet shooting pistol though! Perfect little carry gun. Will add pics for you all soon!

Standard barrel with bushing or bull barrel?
Is your's a light weight, LW serial prefix?

It is a standard barrel with a hex key type guide rod under the barrel. I have never seen one of these until now. And yep it is an LW serial code!

made in the mid '90s.

you can also call SA to see when the serial was registered in their book.

I had a "LW" Compact that was modified by Gunsite and IIRC it was a 98 build...

that last run must have been '96-'98
