A chemical phosphate conversion coating called Parkerizing renders the ferrous-metal frame and slide of the BBR 3.10 with a uniform, matte finish resistant to corrosion and wear while increasing surface area for lubricant to further protect the firearm. Atop the BBR’s steel slide, Armscor employs LPA for its rear MPSP2 adjustable sight, and within the front dovetail rests a serrated-post. To combat the effects of recoil from the gun’s .45 ACP chambering and diminutive size, the barrel and slide feature three ports to direct gas vertically. Additionally, machined G10 stocks and checkering along the front- and backstrap combine to improve operator purchase during range sessions.
The feature-rich BBR 3.10 was constructed to appease admirers of the modern 1911 by incorporating features top down, in and out that boost the user experience. Armscor option the 3.10 with a skeletonized hammer, textured slide-lock lever, beavertail grip safety and skeletonized trigger adjustable for over-travel allowance.
