Cabot 1911s: Already a national champion

20130114_101152

Cabot Guns is a newcomer to the 1911 industry who focuses on high-end 1911 pistols. In 2012, sponsored shooter Brian “Gunny” Zins (from Top Shot Season 2) won the NRA National Pistol Championship with an out-of-the-box Cabot. It was also Cabot’s first year in that competition, a very impressive feat for both the pistol, and the shooter.

Cabot makes a left and right handed version of their 1911s. Brian “Gunny” Zins (Top Shot Season 2) and William Bethards (Top Shot Season 4) encouraged me to shoot them both at the same time. Quite fun, and challenging.

I will be getting some closer pictures this week when we’re in the warm indoors and have more time with their pistols.

    Not that Cabot doesn’t make fine firearms (I’m sure they do), but victory in a shooting match has much more to do with the shooter than the firearm… ;)

      Always true but you have to have good equipment to augment that talent and Cabot sure supplies that.

    …but 5,000 is a bit more than I’d really care to spend on a 1911.
