American Tactical Inc, is a US manufacturer and worldwide importer of firearms, ammunition, and tactical equipment probably most famous for some of their 1911 pistols. They have just introduced the all-new FXH-45M Moxie 1911 pistol. The FXH-45M Moxie looks and feels different with an all-new barrel, slide, and sight set from a standard 1911 pistol. The Moxie also features a new hybrid design combining a polymer frame with an alloy upper.
American Tactical Unveils New FXH-45M Moxie 1911
The FXH-45M Moxie is a single action, semi-automatic pistol chambered in .45 ACP. It has a height of 5.4 inches and measures 8.7 inches long. It weighs 1.95 lbs unloaded and without the magazine. The Moxie has black polymer grips and a removable top plate that allows for the addition of an optics mount. It accepts Glock front and rear sights, including aftermarket night sights. This new breed of 1911 is compatible with most standard 1911 parts and grips. It ships with one 8-round magazine included.

The Moxie is a full-size hybrid 1911 pistol featuring a patented polymer frame with two metal inserts for added stability and durability. The Moxie also features a 4140 steel slide with a parkerized finish. The frame was designed with built-in finger grooves for an ergonomic feel and I think it also gives it a unique look that sets it apart from a standard 1911.
I think this would be a great introductory pistol for people who like the look and feel of a 1911 but want a lighter and more modern handgun. I especially like the fact that this pistol can take Glock sights as pretty much every gun store in the country has them readily available and you can even find them online easily in almost any style you’d like. The FXH-45M Moxie (ATIGFXH45M) has an MSRP of $399.95 and is proudly 100% made in America.
