Aeroknox may the best little machine and design shop you’ve probably never heard of. Corey and his Leander, Texas-based team turn out some beautiful and innovative products. The latest addition to their product line: a unique steel 1911 slide that’s sure to make your John Moses Browning pistol stand out at the range.
At $385 the AX//01 1911 slide certainly isn’t cheap, but from my examination of it, the quality appears to be well worth it. Corey is a machinist and has a fresh eye for design. Look for a review of the AX//01 slide here soon.
From Aeroknox’s web site:
Introducing the AX//01 1911 slide by Aeroknox. Our version of what a modern day 1911 slide should look like. Made out of 4340 hi-carbon steel, these slides are struck on precision dies and pre-heat treated to 37-41 RC before they ever see a cutting tool to insure dimensional stability. After which they are precision machined, adding our own style of rear serrations and front “Rack Pads” (textured frontal pads for intense grip). Simple. Modern. Functional.
Standard Novak sight cuts (sights sold separately)
For 5″ Government length .45 ACP 1911’s
Slightly undersized for proper hand lapping fitment to 1911 frame
