No, as all pistols we build are custom made design and because of the often updated options a printed catalog would become outdated too fast to properly represent the current offering .Please visit the Photo Gallery for pictures of the currently available products.

Our stated goal in manufacturing is to go further in innovation and quality. A large part of quality is longevity and reliability. Due to the hydrogen embrittlement implications of hard chroming we find this process is detrimental to the quality of the product.
We use several proprietary coating technology alternatives that increase performance and longevity throughout the life of the pistol.
Our AET (Accuracy Enhancing Technology) is a revolutionary concept in barrel accuracy and featured as an option on Infinity® firearms.
Accuracy Enhancing Technology features include:
- Gain Twist rifling
- Variable width lands
- Optimum Feeding Angle curved ramp
- Special chamber entrance chamfer
- Gold colour Titanium Nitride finish
Our AET barrels will achieve premium accuracy with a quality jacketed projectile. The Titanium Nitride finish has an added benefit of greatly extending barrel life.
Another advantage to manufacturing a complete billet 1911 in house is that we can efficiently manufacture the complete pistol in a variety of materials.
We offer pistols built from carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum*, and titanium. (* Slides are not available in aluminum due to longevity concerns.)
The vast majority of our pistols are made from carbon steel (Blued ) or stainless steel (Silver or Duo-Tone).
Aluminum offers an approximate 67% weight reduction when compared to carbon steel or stainless steel but longevity is a concern.
Titanium offers an approximate 50% weight reduction when compared to carbon steel or stainless steel but the material and manufacturing cost is substantially higher.
For some of the applications titanium material is not always the best option.
In 90% of our production, a titanium frame or slide would not be the best option for competition performance due to increased felt recoil. This is because of the overall weight of the pistol is cut in half.
Titanium does offer corrosion resistance that can not be matched by using carbon steel, stainless steel, or aluminum.
Due to these properties we find the titanium material to be well suited for light weight carry applications.
Yes, all of our pistols are available with a custom serial number at no additional cost. Serial numbers can be up to 13 characters and MUST contain at least one number.
Due to the custom nature of each pistol please use the “Customise your pistol” section for a quote. If you wish to replicate a design in our photo gallery please email or call us to provide the photo number and a quote can be provided.
