The Lt. Colonel (LTC) has a 4.25-inch barrel on a full-size frame. This classic combination makes it the most popular 1911 .45 ACP compact pistol. Para Ordnance adds its exclusive Power Extractor Technology and a match-grade integral ramped stainless barrel to make it the best 1911 in its class. It now comes standard with a 3-dot sight system. The brilliant fiber optic in the front sight naturally draws your eye to it.
