USA – Standard Manufacturing Company of New Britain, CT is proud to announce that it is beginning to produce its own line of 1911 pistols with the venerable bone and charcoal case colored finish.
This is one of the very few 1911 pistols available on the market today that is offered with these vibrant blue, green, and brown colors; this finish has not been commercially offered for many years.
The Standard Manufacturing 1911 features a frame and slide machined from 4140 carbon steel forgings, a 5” stainless steel match-grade barrel chambered in 45ACP. All of the machining and handwork is done at the Standard Manufacturing factory which is well known for its state of the art machining centers and extremely talented gunsmiths which also produce the classic Fox, Model 21, and Parker shotguns.
According to Lou Frutuoso, the President of Standard Manufacturing, the case colored 1911 pistols on display at the 2017 SHOT show were by far the crowd favorite at the show. He attributes this to the fact the bone and charcoal case coloring process is an art form that has been lost in today’s gunmaking industry, but, fortunately is still being masterfully utilized at Standard Manufacturing Company.
The initial offering of these guns will carry an MSRP of $1,499 for a very limited time and will be available through all of major distributors, and stocking Standard Manufacturing dealers.
