Cabot Guns recently announced the new Vintage Classic 1911 pistol, combining a traditional feel with advanced aerospace construction techniques.
The Vintage Classic begins with a solid block of steel. Its frame and slide are constructed of 416 Stainless Billet. Cabot’s computer-controlled precision machining and build processes ensure that each individual part is consistent. The company’s proprietary hardening process, coupled with an innovative thermal chemical treatment of the steel, creates the Vintage Classic’s warm finish. The patina varies slightly from gun to gun, due to a unique thermal chemical process.
Standard on the Vintage Classic are full-length front to rear slide-top serrations that lead the shooter’s eye to a spherical gold bead front sight. Additionally the pistol has a low-mount fixed or adjustable rear sight. Twenty-four line-per-inch Rhombus checkering is along both the front strap and main spring housing of the pistol. Grips of checkered Turkish Walnut or white American Holly are available. Similar to the frame and slide, the one-piece full-length guide rod, slide stop and magazine release are all billet-made.
“The 1911 truly symbolizes the might of freedom’s march and its resilience against the tests of time,” said Cabot Guns CEO Rob Bianchin. “It’s an ode to the original vision of John Moses Browning,” he added.
