NRA Gun of the Week: BUL Armory 1911 Ultra Pistol

Imported from Israel by International Firearm Corp., the BUL Armory 1911 Ultra is built on the foundation laid by John Browning more than 100 years ago, modernized for today's concealed-carry practitioners. Featuring an aluminum frame and steel slide fitted for a 3.25" barrel chambered for 9 mm Luger, the 1911 Ultra is the lightest and most compact 1911 in the company's lineup, weighing in at 25 ozs. empty. BUL Armory renders this compact arm in a matte black finish—the frame is hard-coat anodized and a black-oxide finish to the slide provides protection to combat corrosion. For the full details on the 1911 Ultra, watch this NRA Gun of the Week video hosted by American Rifleman's Kelly Young.
