Rob Pincus has provided reality-based tactical and defensive training to thousands of police, military, special forces, and civilians. Now he’s built that experience into a new pistol from a new company. The Avidity Arms PD10 represents Pincus’ vision of the perfect concealed carry pistol for self defense.
The single stack PD10 uses a 10-round Chip McCormick 9mm 1911 magazine. These proven mags are about as slim as it gets, and the PD10’s frame doesn’t add too much more to that. Max width is just an inch. With a 4-inch barrel and 5.14-inch height, the gun is a very svelte compact, but certainly not a sub-compact.
The grip has been designed for shooters of all sizes, with a trigger reach and grip girth that will work for just about any hand size, without the need for swappable back straps. Production PD10s will have a trigger safety blade on that fairly straight trigger bow. The takedown process is also common to many striker-fired, polymer pistols.
The rear sight is Pincus’ I.C.E. CLAW design made by Ameriglo, and the front is their square LumiGlo or ProGlo with Tritium insert.
Weight is estimated at under 19 ounces, and MSRP should come in around $499. ETA is “later this year.”
