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.

I bought one. Not a 1911 guy. Fell in love with a pretty face. Have not shot it. I’m have a issue with checkering with the front strap. It’s suppose to have it. Now I have two stores from Customer Service and I’m about 2 inches away from getting pissed off. I paid an a lot of money for this weapon… and I have a inquiry in and I have not heard back it’s been 8 hours now. I know in the big scheme of thing in their business i’m pennies….but it means a lot to me. @ $1800 I… Read more »

I’ll pass(out) on this one due to looks and price.

Can the reporter or any reader confirm independently that Mr. Frutuoso’s colorful 1911’s were indeed “by far the crowd favorite” at the 2017 SHOT Show?

I have to imagine that SigSauer and Glock provided at lease some very close competition.

More generally, are we becoming numb to exaggerated, unsupported claims? Talk amongst yourselves.

No one cares what you think. Becoming numb to whiners.

It’s definitely different but for the money, that would not be my first pick!

Personally I think it looks beautiful. Those grips look really pretty and I like the finish.

Not a fan of the 1911. But if they colored the DP12 in this fashion, I would have to buy another one.

Turnbull does this to the frames and slides also and im not a fan. To each his own, just not my bag. Ive never heard of these people and if they are completely new, it would be best to hold off a couple years and let them work the bugs out. Like anyone else, they need to prove they are worth noticing! Just my .02

$1499.00 bucks for a 1911 that looks like crap? Nope!

I like case-hardened frames for Single Action Armys (and cap-and-ball Colts), and I also like the “strawing” on Luger safeties, but it’s just wrong for 1911s. Plus, the 1911 in the picture looks like it was dropped in the mud. (That’s what I though had happened to it till I read the headline.)
I also don’t like FDE or Cerakoted 1911s. JMB meant for the 1911 to be deep-blued, Parkerized, or nickel-plated, and would have approved of electroless nickel or stainless steel if he’d lived long enough. But case-hardening is for 19th century pistols.
Am I a bad person?

JMB liked any firearm he created that sold as for a 1911 that is case colored I have seen several that were done much better than the example in the picture and look awesome. Would I pay the money they want for that ugly case-colored 1911 in the picture above no but I would gladly pay the money and more for anyone of the matching set I saw at my local range a few weeks ago

Dude, humor.
JMB liked any 1911, with any finish, that put money in his pocket. That was his business.
The example in the picture looks like it fell in the mud. It looks like a mixture of case-hardening and the “strawing” that was used on the Luger safety. I don’t like it, and I was just using JMB for comedic purposes.
