TTAG ran into a new American gun company at the NRA show: Cabot Guns. [Caution: link triggers autoplay audio] You may remember our exclusive April piece on Cabot’s $4,300 GI 1911. In the months that followed, TTAG secured extended trigger time with test models to verify Cabot’s claim that each pistol produced will ship with specs that “exceed national match standards.” We visited Cabot’s factory to see how the company makes [what they say is] the finest tolerance 1911 in the world . . .
Next week, I’ll take a hard look at the Cabot Guns’ difference, shoot their Jones and Rangemaster 1911’s with 10-time bullseye pistol champion Brian Zins, and show what $14,500 buys you (hint: look above). Watch this space. . .
