Guncrafter Adds 9mm to American Pistol


Many people know Guncrafter Industries for the .50 GI round and the pistols that chamber it. However, the company manufactures guns in other calibers as well. In fact, it just added the 9mm to its line of American pistols. Prior to the American, the company offered 9mm in just the No Name and Frag lines.

The American is a 1911-style handgun that has a range of great features that position it as a respectable choice for self-defense and other uses. The guns have an ambidextrous thumb safety and 15 lpi checkering on the grip area of the frame. The magazine well is a single piece design that has a lanyard loop as a standard piece.

For this pistol, Guncrafter Industries includes an accessory rail for the addition of a white light. On top, the company adds a tritium front sight for low light work and a Ledge rear sight that has a flat face that can be used to run the slide with only one hand.

Guncrafter guns are highly customizable, and the base price of the American is $2,895. All of the Guncrafter guns are inspected by the company owner prior to shipping. Each gun is backed by a transferrable warranty and a “wellness check” that allows owners to ship the guns back for inspection and cleaning.

    Eurotrash caliber! Needs moar .50!

  • Harry’s Holsters

    That’s Wilson Combat pricing territory.

    • FWIW: Alex Zimmerman used to be the head of R&D for Wilson Combat before he started Guncrafter Industries.

      • Harry’s Holsters

        That makes since. I love seeing new companies but unless they offer something unique like their 50 cal I tend to go towards an established company for a purchase like the 9mm.

      • Frank Grimes

        At least at Wilson they can properly fit a grip safety.

  • USMC03Vet

    Omg that price.
    I thought Springfield’s EMP was over priced.

    It’s a 9mm 1911, not a space probe.

    • Martin M

      I nearly spit my coffee! Thanks, but no thanks.

  • Sid Collins

    For $2000, I bought a used 3/4 truck which supported my business. I made a living with that truck that supported my wife and children. Now, I love 1911s. However, the price is just not reasonable.

  • Gary Kirk

    .460 Rowland please

  • El Duderino

    Hmm, maybe neck the .50GI down to 9mm and I’ll pay $2900…

  • Edeco

    FNX50T conversion kit please.
