Cabot Guns’ lineup of investment-grade custom M1911s are as well-known for its extremely tight tolerances and superb mechanical accuracy (capable of 1.5" or smaller groups at 25 yards), as they are for their exquisite presentations and exotic construction materials. The National Standard fits right in as a recent addition to the family.
Collectors of M1911 recreations look to Cabot for its bespoke craftsmanship and pure American-made guns, “right down to the pins, springs and grip-screw bushings.” The Pennsylvania-based gunmaker manufactures its National Standard from American-sourced steel—416 stainless steel billets are the foundation for this latest Cabot creation.
As is befitting of a custom pistol, prospective National Standard purchasers can hand-select many components of his or her choice—from multiple sight, stock panel and trigger options to an extended magazine well or a red-dot mount—and the National Standard is offered in both Government and Commander sizes and chambered for either .45 ACP or 9 mm Luger.
Fully dehorned, the National Standard features satin-polished flats and a proprietary hardening treatment, a hand-fit barrel with a polished feed ramp, and rhombus-cut checkering on both the mainspring housing and the frontstrap. Machined from stainless steel are also the one-piece guide rod, beavertail grip safety with memory pad, magazine release button, barrel bushing and thumb safety. The National Standard ships with luxurious walnut grips featuring an inlaid medallion, but a wide range of grip options are available to personalize your pistol.
The options that come listed with Cabot’s National Standard are seemingly endless, from sights to walnut stocks with custom inlaid medallions to magazine well types and safety selectors, Cabot has you covered with its National Standard build sheet. A non-refundable deposit is required at time of order. Cabot 1911s are not available for purchase in California and Massachusetts. Pricing for the Cabot National Standard 1911 starts at $4,295.
