Guncrafter Industries has unveiled its new HOSS (Heavy Operating Shooting System) 1911 pistol, which the Arkansas-based custom gun manufacturer touts as “the most significant upgrade to the 1911 since 1911.”
“Even the 1911 pistol can be improved upon. Being a user, gunsmith, and engineer my universe has revolved around Browning’s masterpiece for more than 35 years,” Guncrafter founder Alex Zimmerman said in a press release. “I identified the parts under the most stress, and the most likely to fail: The extractor, slide stop, plunger tube, ejector, barrel link, barrel bushing and the barrel. We’ve made these parts much stronger, more reliable and simply better- yet they look and operate like standard parts. These upgrades do not affect the weight or function of the pistol – they just don’t break or malfunction”.
