  • EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Auto-Ordnance’s Classic 1911PKZSE Warhorse

    This revived GI-style 1911PKZSE pistol provides modern shooters with a fresh take on Uncle Sam’s battle-proven, .45 ACP design!

    Personal Defense World, July 31, 2015 | By Robert A. Sadowski

    The 1911 was made to take abuse as much as give it out in real-world combat, where a pistol had to be immune to dust, sand, mud and even rust from lack of maintenance. The tolerances of the GI-issued M1911A1s were loose for a reason. Today we are spoiled—not that I’m complaining—with accurate, tight-fitting pistols that feature extended beavertail grip safeties, mag wells, Picatinny rails, large sights, Cerakote finishes, lowered and flared ejection ports and a slew of other enhancements that make operating a 1911-style pistol more comfortable and more effective. A number of manufacturers build GI-style M1911- and M1911A1-style pistols, albeit with modern upgrades for today’s shooters.

Others are old names whose companies essentially went belly up and the name has been brought back in front of a new company. A relatively few of the more famous names have actually been in existence since the founding of the companies. One of these is Auto-Ordnance Corporation, makers of the famous Thompson (“Tommy Gun”) submachine gun.

  • Thompson Model 1911TC

    Handguns, Feb/March 2014 | By Stan Trzoniec | Page 58 & 59

    You would think that with all of the new cartridges, defensive handguns and new equipment out there, we wouldn’t really need another 1911 in .45 ACP. But with the recent stream of firearms going out to consumers, and the companies working almost 24/7 right now to fulfill the need, there’s room for more.
