Besides being the home to the creator of the 1911, Americans have also created the use of the Integral Accessory Rail Frame on a uniquely American version of the 1911. Not sure that JMB ever even considered adding that feature to his masterful creation but it makes for a great addition to the tactical deployment of this firearm in places where evil hides. Having a light fixed to your pistol makes a lot of sense, freeing up the other hand to open doors, cradle loved ones, or to hold off the bad guys enough that you can lessen their treat to you while removing them from the fight. Many Tac-teams have employed them all over the world but as we see it they are uniquely American. Take notice how the end of the light-rail is angled to match the ball cuts of the slide for a very clean look, a detail often “overlooked” by other manufacturers. As with all other models the frame, slide, and barrel are machined from forged components and expertly fitted to make a masterpiece from a collection of machined parts held to the highest standards. Alex demands them all to be as close to perfection as humans can make them and that is what our Gunsmiths do. The American comes standard with a one-piece magwell with an integrated lanyard loop, executed with a functional blend to facilitate smooth magazine changes with no hang-up points. Equally at home in an urban environment, the outdoors or on your night stand, light attached keeping back the dark, the American will not let you down – this is a hard core fighting pistol.
