The 1911 Spartan is also one of the more awesome looking handguns to roll onto store shelves in some time with an Oil Rubbed Bronze (ORB) PVD-coated frame and slide, low-profile night sights, a skeletonized combat hammer and trigger, front strap checkering, custom Spartan grips with a Spartan logo and a steel magwell that houses an eight-round single stack magazine. On the slide and the grips are written in original Greek, “Molon Laabe,” which translated means, “Come and Take Them.” This is definitely a handgun for the times.
