    ID on Safari Arms pistol?

    Can anyone offer any information about what I think is a Safari Arms Enforcer? Unfortunately, there are no markings on the slide, but the frame is marked:

    M-S SAFARI ARMS
    PHOENIX ARIZONA
    5213

    When I purchased the used gun, it was represented as "Hard chrome finish, matte - Commander slide \ Officer frame". The pistol uses a 6 round 1911 magazine.

    Thanks in advance for any insights.

    That’s what it looks like to me.

    Agree, Enforcer. Not really a Commander slide, the recoil spring assembly might look odd when you get inside.

    It's a 4" barrel and a 6 1\4" slide - relatively standard recoil spring with a full length guide rod, but an unusual looking screw on the end of the guide rod, and a barrel bushing that screws in, versus turns slightly and then slides out like on other 1911s. I did see a matching serial number on the inside of the slide, so I'm pretty sure that it's not a "franken-gun" put together from pieces and parts of different guns. I bought the gun (used) cause I was intrigued with the finger groove as in integral part of the grip - I also have an Oly Arms Matchmaster 1911 with the same type of grip. Care to offer a guess on a fair valuation - I'm thinning my herd and getting rid of the "interesting" guns and focusing on regular shooters.

    For selling it I would look at what they have sold for on the international sites like gunbroker. Somewhere on the planet there may be people that collect them and they reeeeely want that model.
