Mooresville, N.C. (December 2015)Carolina Arms Group, LLC. (CAG), a manufacturer dedicated to producing heirloom quality, American made firearms, is proud to introduce the Trenton 1911 handgun line. The lines three models are meticulously crafted for the ultimate in fit and finish and uncompromising performance quality.

The Trenton Tactical 1911 frame and slide are American made from forged carbon steel.

The Trenton Stainless is Carolina Arms Group’s 5” Executive model built on American made forged stainless steel. The Trenton Two-Tone is also constructed from forged stainless steel.

The Tactical frame and slide and the Two-Tone slide are finished with PVD DLC, an attractive black finish that is extremely corrosion and scratch resistant. Trenton 1911’s include the patented Kart Precision barrel, which  is forged from ordnance steel, to national match specs and accuracy tested to 1.25 – 1.5” MOA.

The Trenton’s extended thumb safety is wider than a standard 1911 thumb safety and gives the owner the option of an ambidextrous extended thumb safety. A match worthy 4 lb. adjustable aluminum trigger offers a silky smooth pull with a crisp, audible reset. Carolina Arms Group’s proprietary VZ® grips, featuring the Carolina eagle emblem, provide the optimal grip with high end aesthetics.

Hey Bob, Why be an a**hole and make an intelligent comment instead of bias ignorance? I am not from NC but what has that got to do with anything I really would like to know? We gun people need to have respect?


You do realize about nine states have a city called Trenton in them.

Bob Sadtler

What self-respecting gun owner will have anything to do with a gun named after the capital of the Sewer State?
