The Discretion’s match-grade stainless barrel is extended and threaded to make it a ready host for suppressors. Its aggressively-ported slide, serrated trigger and competition-inspired hammer give it a look all of its own, making it stand out in our line of 1911s. High tritium sights allow for sighting over the top of most pistol suppressors, with a rear designed so that the slide can be racked on a belt if using the pistol one-handed.
