Vudoo Gun Works, based in St. George, Utah, is known for its precision rimfire rifles, but for 2022, the company has come out with its own version of the legendary M1911 design, the Möbius M1911. The Möbius combines some of the best features of the original John Browning design, blended with some modern touches and flair.
One of the most notable changes doesn't have to do with the pistols themselves, but rather the manufacturing process Vudoo has implemented in manufacturing the Möbius. Instead of using traditional methods in crafting these M1911s, the company uses state-of-the-art aerospace manufacturing techniques to ensure that all components are held to tight tolerances. This also mean that the Möbius requires little hand-fitting in the assembly process, and the end product features a precise fit and finish, along with a production lead time that is significantly shorter.
Offered in three different full-size models, the Möbius is available in 9 mm Luger as well as the classic .45 ACP chambering. These three models come with different color options, which includes stainless, black and a two-tone blend. All three models feature Novak iron sights dovetailed into the slide, front and rear slide serrations, a checkered front strap on the grip frame and an extended beavertail on the grip safety.
Both the thumb safety and slide catch are located at their traditional locations on the left side of the frame. Each Möbius M1911 also comes from the factory wearing a set of VZ Grips stocks, made from either wood or G10, which have a Vudoo logo medallion embedded in the center. All models and chamberings of the Möbius feed from single-stack magazines, of which two stainless-steel magazines are included with each. The centerfire versions of the Möbius have a suggested retail price of $2,995.
Vudoo has also announced a fourth version of the Möbius that sticks closer to the company's rimfire background, with a target version chambered in .22 LR. The .22 LR version has its own proprietary adjustable sights, slide-mounted Picatinny rail for mounting optics and also comes with two magazines. At some point, the .22 LR-chambered Möbius slide assembly and .22 LR magazines will be offered as a conversion kit for the centerfire Möbius 1911s as well.
