Tisas expanded its lineup of concealed-carry pistols with its all-new Stingray Carry, a compact M1911 loaded with enhancements that ease concealment and shootability, all at a price point far lower than most pistols equipped with such features.
Each Tisas Stingray Carry M1911 is built on a lightweight aluminum frame treated with a Stingray Gray Cerakote finish. One of the most noticeable elements of the pistol is the incorporation of a bobtail-style cut at the bottom of the frame, a trademark normally found on Ed Brown's line of M1911 concealed-carry pistols. This feature prevents the prominent, oblique edge found at the bottom of the mainspring housing from poking through cover garments, thereby betraying the presence of a concealed firearm.
The frame is topped by a forged-steel slide and cold-hammer-forged barrel measuring 4.25" long. Another highlight of the Stingray is that the uses a Series 70 action, and users will also find a flared and lowered ejection port, as well as a trigger-guard undercut that allows the gun to sit lower in the hand to reduce felt recoil. Sitting atop the slide is a pair of Novak-style three-dot sights, and the gun also comes equipped with an ambidextrous thumb safety.
Another custom touch is the addition of snake-skin serrations at the rear of the slide, as well as a generous, well-blended beavertail grip safety and attractive, starburst-pattern stocks. The Tisas Stingray Carry M1911 is available in 9 mm Luger only, and the pistol ships with two magazines, one nine-round flush-fit mag and a second 10-round extended magazine. Unloaded, the Stingray Carry weighs 26.9 ozs. The suggested retail price on the gun is $580. For more information, visit tisasusa.com.
