Franklin, TN –-(Ammoland.com)- The Maximus Arms Gladiator has been featured in the September issue of Combat Handguns, now on newsstands.
The handgun review, titled “The Gladiator” written by David Bahde, featured a notable introductory quote, “Using tank-tough 17-4PH steel, Maximus Arms’ ultra-rugged Gladiator .45 is one 1911 destined to echo in eternity!”
Overall, Bahde was impressed with the Gladiator, stating “the Gladiator is a finely built 1911 pistol with some very interesting alterations to the standard design … all of the built-in features, like the ejector, safety plunger and magazine well, should provide for excellent longevity. Given the properties of the steel, my guess is the ejector will last forever, and the rest of the accessories integrate rather nicely.”
Along with the dimensional changes made to the 1911, Bahde was also impressed by the Gladiators accuracy and reliability, “Shooting it at 25 yards, I achieved some highly accurate results, with the best group measuring right at 1.5 inches … The Gladiator proved to be a very reliable 1911 with excellent accuracy.” He also praised the flared mag well, pointing out how it “facilitated very positive magazine swaps.”
