The FRAG brings a new gripping surface to the custom 1911 community. Taking inspiration from the WWII pineapple grenades, the front strap and mainspring housing are treated to our unique frag pattern. Add the complimenting machined Aluma-Grips and they all work together to provide an outstanding gripping surface no matter the conditions – once you pick it up you will appreciate what the frag texture does for a secure grip. It does this without sharp points that are prone to damage, collect lint, and that can hang up on clothes while carrying concealed. Functionality aside, the FRAG has a truly unique to it, it is stunning! The FRAG is our only pistol that starts out with a brass bead front and u-notch rear sight combination. Paying tribute to the old school nature of the pistol with a classy old world fighting sight! The brass bead front sight has the advantage of working well in most all lighting conditions. When teamed up with our U-Notch Ledge Rear Sight it makes for incredibly fast, yet accurate shot placement. Adding front cocking serrations round out the package for ease of manipulation or chamber checks – the FRAG is the choice of professionals. Built one at a time, exactly to your order, and they take shape under Alex’ supervision to make sure that his dream is fully realized, by our customers.
