Proprietary Fully Machined Forged Frame and Slide: All M1's are hand built starting with the finest of top quality components. Original 1911 Size and Weight: Fits in standard holsters and will accept many standard 1911 aftermarket parts. 40oz. unloaded. Heavy Match Grade 5" Barrel" Made of Stainless steel for corrosion resistance and oversized for precise fitting of critical areas with precision rifling for accuracy. Thick walls increase rigidity and strength and help to reduce recoil. It does not use a barrel bushing which also eliminates a possible weak point. Full Length Guide Rod: We know the use of guide rods is controversial in some circles, but the only half way legitimate argument against them is field stripping, but let’s be honest, in day to day carry that’s just not an issue, most conflicts are over in seconds. On the plus side it keeps the recoil spring straight which makes for smoother operation and increased spring life. With a reverse plug system as with the M1, field stripping only requires a paper clip or small nail. Mainspring Housing w/Integral Lanyard Loop Attachment and 20lpi Checkering Allows for a positive grip and the attachment of a weapon retention device to prevent loss during tactical operations and is unobtrusive when not in use. 20lpi Carry Checkering on Frontstrap: Provides a secure grip on the middle portion of the frontstrap, while leaving the sides smooth to prevent snagging on clothing during concealed carry. Solid Aluminum Aluma-Grips: Fully checkered for a sure grip and hard anodized coating adds durability that could last the lifetime of the pistol unlike wood grips. It also gives increased hand protection in the event of an accidental double charged round. Hand loaders can appreciate this feature. GI Magazines: M1 magazines are made of heat treated stainless steel and are of heavier gage steel than standard 1911 mags for increased strength and rigidity. The magazines are positioned higher in the frame to increase reliability and give smoother feeding. The self lubricating polymer follower has a steel insert at the slide stop contact point for longer life. Our magazines are slightly longer in order to make room for an extra power chrome silicon spring for increased life and reliability. The base pads are machined from aluminum for light weight and durability and are designed so they can be grasped in the event that it sticks due to dirt or sand. They are available in 7rd.-50GI and 8rd.-45ACP capacity. Fully Machined Hammer and Sear: Properly heat treated S7 Tool steel matched set ensures reliability and consistency. Trigger Specifications: The M1 uses a lightweight aluminum trigger to reduce trigger bounce and has an overtravel adjustment screw which is secured with removable Loc-Tite to prevent loosening. Trigger pull weight is set at 4.5-5# for duty/carry use. Traditional Style Machined Extractor: External extractors are all the rage now and there was nothing to stop us from using one, but we chose to stay with a traditional style even though it is more costly and time consuming to fit. It is far less affected by dirt and sand by design and is every bit as strong if it is of high quality and properly fit. Poor quality and fitting is the major cause of extractor failure. Reliability Features: Barrel and feed ramp are properly contoured and highly polished for smooth feeding. The fully machined match grade extractor is properly tuned for reliable case extraction. An extended machined ejector is installed for positive ejection. Ejection port is fully lowered and flared. Top quality extra power Wolff springs are used throughout the pistol to ensure long life and positive, reliable operation. GI magazines are engineered for smoother feeding and extra power chrome silicon springs give long service life. Brown Products Tactical Thumb Safety: Narrow tactical width gives sufficient contact surface, while keeping the profile to a minimum for concealed carry. M1 comes standard with strong side only safety for maximum simplicity. High Sweep Grip Safety: Allows as high a grip as possible on the pistol to aid in recoil control and the raised pad disengages the safety mechanism quicker when using a higher grip. Slide Stop: Full machined from barstock to close tolerances and properly heat treated for strength. Heinie Slant Pro Tritium Sights: Superior quality fixed sights with tritium inserts for low light shooting environments, straight "8" style dots are fast and easy to use under stress. Beveled Magazine Well: Entry edges of well are beveled for smooth and quick mag changes. Full De-horning: All exterior edges have been beveled for smooth feel and snag free carry. Some internal edges are also beveled for more reliable and consistent operation. Parkerized Finish: Mil-Spec parkerized finish offers corrosion protection while keeping the surface non-reflective. Model No.1 comes standard with 2 magazines and a Black Cordura case.
