Pilot Mountain Arms EDC Model 4.25”, .45cal 1911 Pistol

Pilot Mountain Arms’ Every Day Carry 1911 is built with match grade accuracy and uncompromising reliability for those who carry concealed. The pistol is built using stainless steel components to withstand the challenges of every day carry. The bobtail frame modification removes nearly ½" of material from the butt while maintaining correct grip position. The bobtail mainspring housing reduces bulk without reducing magazine capacity and eliminates the sharp profile at the rear of the grip that can “print” when carrying a concealed 1911 Auto. The “Chain Link” style checkering on the mainspring housing ensures a secure grip without being so aggressive that it ruins jackets or clothing when carried concealed. Gun will shoot 1.5” or less at 25 yards and is tuned to reliably feed hollow point ammunition.
