Double stack 1911-style pistols are huge in competitive shooting. They combine the benefits of large magazines with the sweet, glass rod break of a 1911 trigger. Also, to scoot just into Major Power Factor, many shooters opt for the .40 S&W cartridge. Travis Tomasie, a pro shooter with MasterPiece Arms, helped to design a pistol with all of these features. Aimed directly at those looking for a competition gun out of the box, this is the new MPA DS40 TT Comp Pistol.
