Republic Forge makes its world-class 1911s right here in the U.S.—Texas, in fact—with entirely American-made parts. And since its guns are all custom built the way you want them with high-end parts and accessories such as Damascus slides and mammoth-tooth grips, it's no wonder the company website says its guns are for shooters, not beginners. American Rifleman's Joe Kurtenbach stopped by the Republic Forge station at the range during the 2016 SHOT Show to learn more about these pistols and send some rounds downrange.
