DoubleStar 1911 Pistols and New Blade Line

posted on June 1, 2016

DoubleStar’s new PhD (Personal Home Defense) series contains many of the features found in high-end 1911s, but without the high-end price tag. Made in Kentucky with U.S.-made parts, this series of pistols feature aggressive rear cocking serrations, a flat-topped and serrated slide to reduce glare, and comes equipped with XS Express tritium sights for fast target acquisition. A Wilson Combat high-ride beavertail grip safety rounds out the special features.
