Discontinued 2019.

The Mayhem is based on an all steel, hi-capacity version of the 1911 frame. It comes ready to dominate the Limited IPSC/USPSA division or fulfill the needs of shooters looking for a superbly accurate target-grade 1911. Taking weight away from where you don’t want it and adding it to where you do was the first priority in designing this handgun. The 6 inch bull barrel and tactical rail add to the static “good weight.” We wanted a 6 inch long slide for the added sight radius and enhanced pointability, but that would add to the “bad weight”, so the 6 inch slide has been lightened to equal the weight of a 5 inch. The result is a 6 inch long slide that balances and feels like a 5 inch but shoots like a 6 inch. The combination of the all steel frame with industry-leading parts delivers the most well-balanced, softest shooting 6 inch limited gun on the market. The Mayhem is truly a handgun made for shooters by shooters. (.40 S&W)

  • Flat K-Style Trigger, The textured flat face long trigger is our take on the popular k-style trigger.
