USA -(Ammoland.com)- Honor Defense is pleased to announce 9 new skus of the Honor Guard Compact and Sub-Compact models.
This brings the number available models of the best, American-made, single-stack 9 mm pistol up to 16, which is a major accomplishment for a company that is less than two years old, especially since most firearm companies only introduce one to two firearms a year.
For Law Enforcement, the Compact HG9CLE is available with a 3.8″ barrel. Offered in Black and FDE grips, they are available with or without a Manual Thumb Safety.
In addition, LE versions include two 8-round magazines for back up and off-duty carry.
For the Commercial market, the Sub-compact and Compact Honor Guards are now available in FDE, OD Green and Mahogany. These are also available with a Manual Thumb Safety or without.
The new additions incorporate the Honor Defense custom features that provide the most comfortable and reliable single-stack 9mm.
The features include:
- Top-rated grip texture
- Snag-free sights with cocking ledge
- Ambidextrous Magazine Release
- Ambidextrous Slide Lock
- Ambidextrous Manual Thumb Safety (optional)
- Stainless steel chassis
- Serrations over the top
“Shooters like variety,” said Gary Ramey, Honor Defense President. “So we are trying to provide handguns with features they desire, such as compact and long-slide versions, as well as manual safeties and even colors that make their guns stand out.”
The Honor Guard is a striker-fired 9 mm handgun developed with input from firearm and law enforcement experts. As such, it comes standard with features typically available only on higher-prices guns.
Including ambidextrous controls on the magazine release and slide lock, as well as ambidextrous safety on versions with a manual safety. The standard sights, are angled-cut from the rear to prevent snagging when drawing, along with a flat edge on the front of the back sight for cocking the firearm one-handed.
The pistols also feature a crisp trigger with a short reset for fast follow-up shots and serrations over the slide for easier racking. Additionally, each Honor Guard comes with two magazines – a seven round and an eight round – and two backstraps for customizing the grip to the shooter.
“We have grown to have a family of 16 pistol skus since January 2016. With advanced design engineering, we will continue to build on that success” added Ramey. “We will remain focused on designs that are ambidextrous, modular, and do not need tools or trigger pull for disassembly. We'll also be adding more grip sizes, calibers and barrel options in the future.”
