NEW: Gunsmith your 1911 Confidently in ERGO's MAST – Modular Armorer's Stand

Most firearm enthusiasts enjoy being shade-tree mechanics of their firearms. There is a sense of satisfaction building your own firearm or even modifying one to your personal tastes. To cater to that segment of shooters ERGO created the MAST (Modular Armorer’s Stand). A simple, but useful platform to hold your pistol while you do your DIY gunsmithing. Likely the most modified and readily available pistol for aftermarket parts is your basic Glock. With that knowledge, that was an obvious first choice for ERGO to introduce their MAST for.

But how about a 2nd module for the MAST?… Well, ERGO decided upon the historic model 1911!

The MAST now available for 1911s will fit any Colt 1911, similar clones and even smaller Officer models (traditional 3″ pistols). For only a MAST module, the plastic pole that inserts into the mag well of the pistol, the MSRP is $19.99 a unit. If you would like a MAST module and base, then the MSRP is $36.99 for the package.

If you go the economical route of buying only a module, you essentially have 3 options in which to use it. You can bolt it to your workbench. You can clamp it tight in a vice. Or you can pony up and get the matching base from ERGO.

These should soon be available from ERGO and complete specification sheets can be read below.

    Or... you can just get the cheapest magazine (possibly one of those ProMag extendos) for your pistol that's available and some plywood and attach it to that. Bam, you got a base for like 15 bucks at the most then.

    I can't see getting any real work done on you're pistol with this, not all mag wells are exactly the same size get a little wobble going on....then you'll just put It In the bench vise, which Is where you should have put It In the first place.
    This thing Is the answer to the question NO ONE Is asking.
