Pearl River, NY – USA based Kahr Firearms Group is proud to announce the re-introduction of the Thompson Custom 1911TC with stainless steel frame and slide. The pistol was first introduced in early 2008 with a limited production run of 100 units. After the 2008 presidential election, production shifted away from the 1911TC in order to meet increasing high demand for concealed carry pistols. Improved manufacturing processes over the past 5 years, including the use of high-precision equipment with fewer set-ups, has reduced the cost to appeal to consumers without sacrificing quality or consistency in the performance.
The Thompson Custom 1911 frame is made from 420 stainless steel casting and the slide features a solid stainless steel billet. The 1911TC features black low-profile front and rear iron sights that are dovetailed into the slide. The ejection port is flared and the slide has front and rear serrations machined at a slight angle. The mainspring housing is checkered and the front strap is machined checkered at 20 lines per inch. Additional features include an adjustable trigger, combat hammer, full-length recoil guide rod, extended beavertail grip safety; extended magazine release; checkered laminate grips and a checkered slide stop lever.
The .45 ACP has a 5” barrel – length is 8.5” overall and weighs just 39 oz. The 1911TC is shipped with one 7-round magazine. Finishing features include an attractive matte finish on the frame and slide and the markings are laser-engraved, including the distinctive Thompson bullet logo on the slide, and a Thompson bullet logo inlay on the grip. MSRP on the Thompson Custom 1911 stainless frame is $813.00.

Pearl River, NY – In an effort to address the many political challenges the firearm industry has been dealt the past few months, Justin Moon, on behalf of the Kahr Firearms Group, has stepped forwarded to make generous donations in support of three critically important groups – The NRA Firearms Civil Rights Defense Fund, NRA Freedom Action Foundation and the NSSF PAC.
In a statement from Frank Harris, VP, Sales and Marketing, Kahr Firearms Group, Harris stated, “Our CEO and Founder, Justin Moon, feels strongly that educating society and voters regarding the history and background of the Second Amendment is crucial to the survival of our nation as a constitutional republic. Current events, which brought on the onset of many restrictive new gun laws, do not provide a safer society, but rather they only infringe on the rights of responsible gun owners and violate the principles established by our Founding Fathers. The NRA and the NSSF are leading the charge in this fight for our freedoms and Kahr Firearms Group is honored to be able to support them.”
The NRA Firearms Civil Rights Defense Fund (CRDF), in support of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association's (NYSRPA) has a pending lawsuit challenging the Cuomo Gun Ban. Kahr Arms joins other New York based firearm companies in this fight.
The NRA Freedom Action Foundation leads the charge to educate and register a new generation of voters who support Second Amendment freedoms and our hunting heritage.
The NSSF PAC is a non-partisan, multi-candidate; Federal Election Commission registered political action committee of the National Shooting Sports Foundation. The NSSF PAC supports pro-industry, pro-Second Amendment and pro-sportsmen candidates seeking election or re-election to Federal office.>> Auto-Ordnance News 2012
