Magnum Research has announced a new addition to its 1911 line, in the form of an ultra-compact, ultra-light concealed carry .45 ACP that will be known as the Magnum Research DE1911U (Undercover model).

Standard features include a checkered front and back strap, a double diamond checkered wood grip and stainless steel hex screws.
Chambered in .45 ACP, the DE1911U will have a 6+1 capacity, an overall length of 6.85-inches and will ship with two 6-round magazines.
The DE1911U ships with an MSRP of $946, and should be available beginning in January 2014.
