Auto Ordnance will sell a new GI-type 1911 in 2015. The 1911BKO is a “no frills” pistol with styling similar to the US service pistols. The guns have a carbon steel slide with a matte black finish. The sights are low profile and the grips are plastic.
The guns have a 5″ barrel and weigh in at 39 ounces (unloaded.) A single 7-round magazine will ship with these made in the USA handguns.
Probably one of the more attractive features about the 1911BKO is its price: $571 MSRP. Though it doesn’t have some of features of more expensive 1911-style pistols, the price will make it attractive to a lot of people.
