Removable Base 8-round 45 ACP Black Nitride Magazine

8 round 45 ACP Black Nitride magazine

Engineered as a true 8 round magazine, this magazine has all the features of our original 7 round magazine that has proven itself over the last century. Features that you know it should have, like a steel follower, heavy duty spring, and super-tough base pad. The magazine tube has been lengthened and the base pad wraps around securely, to properly accommodate the 8th round while keeping the original ultra-reliable follower design. The integral base pad easily removes for disassembly and cleaning of the magazine. Black Nitride for a durable, low glare, non-reflective finish. The non-slip, oversized base pad allows for a secure grip no matter what the conditions. The 88 blank number templates on the bottom allows you to easily number and track usage of your mags from 0 up to 99 if you desire (think digital numbers on a standard alarm clock). If you want the most reliable, highest quality 8 round magazine you can buy, look no further!

Ed Brown “Tactical Edge” U-notch rear sight

U-notch rear sight

Precision wired then CNC machined from heat treated 4140 bar stock. Dovetail is 65 degrees x 0.495. Sight height is 0.325″. The U-notch allows for quick instinctive alignment with a dot front sight, such as our fiber optic, gold bead, or tritium front sights. The rear is serrated at 40lpi to reduce glare. The front surface of the rear sight is steeply hooked to assist in emergency one-handed slide operation. The 0.140″ notch makes for a nice compromise between accuracy and a wider notch for quicker acquisition of a dot front sight.

Legacy Classic Custom

CLASSIC CUSTOM

The Classic Custom includes all the classic modifications. Known as our flagship firearm, this is our finest work, and many of our repeat customers say it's the finest pistol available anywhere, at any price. It has all the bells and whistles, and includes those extra enhancements that you don't really need, but really want! Many customers think of it as the proverbial safe queen, but don't let that fool you - it can take just as much hard service as any pistol out there. The unique slide treatment sets it apart from any other pistol. The sides of the slide are painstaking brought to a gleaming high polish finish, by hand, to contrast and enhance the glass bead finished frame. This gorgeous high polish finish really makes the Classic Custom stand out! The top of the slide is flattened and finely grooved to provide a no glare runway effect that naturally guides your eye to the front sight. The rear of the slide is finely serrated 50 lines per inch to match the deep buried adjustable sight and eliminate distracting light reflection. The frame dressed in traditional, 25 LPI checkering.  We think you'll agree the Classic Custom represents the ultimate in quality firearm craftsmanship at it's finest!

Trigger Pull Kit, 5 piece

897-KIT-5

This kit includes our famous Perfection Hammer and mated Perfection Sear, disconnector, sear spring and Government mainspring.

896/897 Perfection Hammer
Completely machined from barstock, these hammers are guaranteed for life against breakage. Improved design with a beautiful chamfer machined all the way around the outside, and also inside the hole. Commander style spur, finely serrated for positive gripping surface. Sides are narrowed to eliminate drag on slide. Lowered strut pin hole reduces full-cock spring pressure. Hammer hooks precisely machined at 020-.022 perfectly square with sharp corners, ready for light, final stoning. Made from alloy steel or stainless steel, heat treated Rc 52-54. The perfect mate for this hammer is our #874 Perfection Sear.

874 Perfection Sear
Computer designed and fully machined from top quality bar stock for the perfect profile. Recommended as a perfect fit with our Hammer #896 and #897 for the best trigger pull possible with the least amount of hand labor – no jigs necessary. Hammer contact angle already prepped ready for your favorite clearance angle. Specs: A2 tool steel, heat treated to 50 Rc.

811-M Perfection Disconnector
Fully machined from bar stock steel, not cast. The only product of it’s kind. The strongest available, and heat-treated for long life and extreme service use. Machined surfaces are finely finished and dimensionally exact. Designed to work perfectly with our Perfection Sear and Hammer for precise trigger jobs every time. Will work with all 1911 pistols including the Hi-Capacity types.

822 Sear Spring
High-quality, tempered spring with extra length on the center leg that allows precise tuning of the disconnector. Helps prevent disconnector failure and gives positive sear engagement. Guaranteed for life against breakage.

816 19# Mainspring
Mainsprings wear out due to age and use and should be replaced every 3,000-5,000 rounds. We recommend this spring rather than the factory standard for a lighter, longer-lasting trigger pull. Plenty of power to set off even the hardest of primers.
