Cabot Guns has announced that their new NERO pistol is now available for preorder. According to Cabot, their customers have been asking for a tactical 1911 but making one was not in their plans until recently. The eight months of designing works led to the creation of NERO. As the company notes, for the first time ever they have added two new ingredients to the accuracy, fit and finish of their pistols – speed and superior ergonomics.
Here is an excerpt from the company’s press release describing the NERO pistol:
Over the past 8 months, we’ve worked hard designing and building what is without a doubt the highest quality railed frame and one-piece magwell ever produced.
What we forged is an avid shooter’s 1911 with the elite accuracy, reliability and feel you’ve come to expect from Cabot… but is also designed to be drawn, shot, reloaded and racked on the fly.
It’s a 1911 you can work hard at the range and can trust to have on your night drawer.
So now we’re proud to introduce The Cabot NERO.
The new Cabot NERO pistol is available in Government (5″ barrel) or Commander (4.25″ barrel) sizes and in .45 ACP or 9x19mm caliber options. The frame and slide are machined out of 416 stainless steel. The beavertail grip safety, thumb safety, slide release, magazine release, ejector, barrel bushing and one-piece recoil spring guide rod are also machined of billet steel. The pistol features an undercut trigger guard, front slide serrations, accessory rail, flared ejection port, 3.5-4 lb flat trigger with vertical serrations and G10 grips. The one-piece extended magwell and mainspring housing are added to make the reloading faster and smoother. The match-grade stainless steel barrels are hand fitted and feature a flush crown. The Ledge Rear Sight is designed to make the one-handed slide racking easier. The front sights are available in red or green fiber optic and white dot options.
Being the Cadillacs of the 1911 world, these guns are not cheap. The MSRP of the standard version is $4,500. The price is identical for both caliber and size options. The guns come standard with a 1.5 MOA at 25 yards accuracy guaranteed however for additional $295 they will further tune it to print better than 1 MOA groups at the same distance. Other optional features include the Warren tritium fixed rear sight ($150), Novak adjustable rear sight ($125), tritium front sight ($75), gold bead front sight ($195), ambidextrous safety ($100) and threaded barrel ($150). The pistols come with two 8-round magazines. The company has started making 20 NERO pistols that will be delivered by the end of 2019.
