New from ATI: Titan LW

American Tactical Imports imports firearms from the Philippines that look like mainstream icons but cost significantly less. The strategy must be successful; all of their handguns are listed with the notice that “This item is currently out of stock. Click the Notify Me button to be notified when the product becomes available.” Hmmm. Maybe ATI waits ’til they get enough customer notification requests before importing a gun into the Land of the Free. As for the new Titan LW, a compact 1911, those can be a bit tricky when it comes to reliability. And shootability. And, as mentioned, availability. Still, we’ll contact ATI for a testing and evaluation sample. It’s the least we can do considering what Teddy Roosevelt did to the Philippines. And hey, it’s a seven-round New York SAFE Act compatible firearm! After you register yourself and your gun and fill out the form requesting data privacy, which must be approved by a judge . . .

American Tactical Imports is proud to introduce the FX 45 Titan Lightweight, exclusively from ATI.

The new Titan LW weights only 24.8 ounces empty, making it ideal for conceal carry situations.

The lightweight version of the popular Titan is an officers model 1911 pistol with 3.13” barrel length, 3 3/8” bull barrel and an overall length of 6.93”. The Titan Lightweight is packed with features like an ambidextrous safety and dovetail style low-profile rear sights. The Titan Lightweight offers a 7 round capacity in 45ACP.

“We are very excited about the Titan Lightweight,” says Tony DiChario, President, American Tactical Imports.

“This version of our popular FX 45 Titan has been in the works for a long time. It is developed for either a left or a right handed shooter, and it gives traditional 1911 lovers a lightweight, short barreled version for every day carry.”

The FX45 Titan LW has an MSRP of $597.95.
