Thompson Auto-Ordnance, part of Kahr Arms, has been making 1911A1-style pistols in .45ACP for years. Now they’re expanding the range to include a government-size 9mm model with an affordable MSRP of $673. According to their press release (below) they’ll also be adding a 4.25″ barrel model down the road.
Thompson Auto-Ordnance, maker of the famous “Tommy Gun” and other classic firearms throughout history, is excited to introduce the new 9mm 1911 pistol.
The 1911 pistol is the iconic American Military handgun, serving members of the United States Armed Forces for over 100 years. Its dependability and stopping power are legendary, in no small measure demonstrated by the fact that many shooters today select it as their primary form of self defense. Auto-Ordnance furthers that tradition of excellence by offering GI model guns based on the original military model 1911s. Auto-Ordnance 1911s are manufactured using modern equipment to exacting engineering standards, and are equipped with the best barrels available to ensure both superb reliability and accuracy. These pistols provide shooters with an opportunity to own and shoot one of the most legendary firearms of America’s military history!
For the first time, Auto-Ordnance is now offering the 1911 in 9mm. In response to growing interest and customer demands, Auto-Ordnance developed the new product and first introduced it at the 2018 SHOT Show. The 9mm 1911 features the classic GI Model 1911 look. It has brown checkered plastic grips, a 5″ barrel and 9-round magazine. MSRP for the 9mm 1911 (1911BK09) is $673. Auto-Ordnance also has plans to explore a compact model in the future with a 4.25″ barrel. Continue following Auto-Ordnance on social media for more news and updates.
