Cabot Guns, a maker of ultra-high-end M1911s, has introduced its S103 Commander, a comparatively affordable model designed for everyday carry. Something of a hybrid, the S103 blends the external profile of a Commander-size slide with the internal workings and cycle length of a full-size M1911—offering a more compact, reliable gun. Based on a hand-fitted frame and slide, and built from 416 stainless steel, the S103 incorporates many of the features one might expect from a custom M1911: a crowned barrel, beveled and chamfered magazine well, lowered and flared ejection port, hand-polished feed ramp and guide rod, and 24-line-per-inch frontstrap checkering. The company’s aluminum tristar trigger provides minimal take-up and a smooth pull set to release between 3.5 and 4 lbs. Available in matte stainless or the company’s black nitride finish, the Cabot Guns S103 Commander is also offered in a left-hand configuration. Price: $3,695. Contact: Cabot Gun Co. LLC; (724) 602-4431; cabotgun.com.
