I don’t get it. Why would you skimp on a gun that you might use to save your life? If you can’t afford a GLOCK, Springfield, Walther, FNH-USA, Kahr or quality whatever, WAIT! Save your money. Buy it when you can. Or buy used. Chances are you won’t need it before you can afford it, even if it takes a year to save-up your shekels. Don’t get me wrong: I’m not a gun snob. Nor am I snob. There are plenty of people who have to watch every penny. A couple of hundred dollars can be an insurmountable financial hurdle. And there’s room to maneuver between these two extremes; there are plenty of reliable value-priced guns [See: post-jump press release on the new Auto-Ordnance $517 1911BKO, above.] How much of a factor is price when you buy/bought an everyday carry gun, or home defense handgun if you don’t carry? . . .
POMONA, NY – USA based, Kahr Firearms Group is proud to announce the introduction of the Auto Ordnance 1911BKO.
The 1911BKO is only the second 1911 pistol to be introduced over the past year, following in the footsteps of the successful 1911TC model in stainless steel just last year.
