Auto Ordnance is bringing back the 1911TC pistol. The original Thompson Custom 1911TC was introduced in early 2008 and only 100 pistols were made. Auto Ordnance states the production numbers were so low because of the shift toward concealed carry pistols after the 2008 US national elections.
The slide is made of stainless steel, machined from a single billet, while the frame is 420 stainless casting. The ejection port is flared, the gun has 20 lpi machined checkering and the trigger is adjustable. Additionally, the gun comes with:
- full length guide rod
- extended beavertail grip safety
- extended magazine release
- checkered slide stop
- one seven-round magazine
- dovetailed iron sights
The 1911TC is chambered for the .45 ACP, has a 5″ barrel and weighs 39 ounces (unloaded). MSRP is $813.
