Illinois-based Devil Dog Arms (DDA) has released its new DDA 1911 pistol lineup for 2018.

Chambered in 9mm (10+1 capacity) or .45 ACP (8+1 capacity), the DDA 1911 series is available in 3.5-inch, 4.25-inch and five-inch Standard or Tac Rail models with a three-slot Picatinny rail forward of the trigger guard. The heat-treated and machined frames are made from 4140 domestic investment cast steel with 22LPI front strap checkering and DDA’s NBD grips. The slide is heat-treated and machined from domestic billet steel and features a custom flat top/45 degree design with oversized front and rear serrations.

All DDA 1911 models boast match-grade, heat-treated, button rifled and double stress relieved barrels machined from 416 stainless steel and hand fitted to a match grade barrel bushing. Other standard features include a 3-hole aluminum trigger with a 3.5-4lb trigger pull, and Kensight DFS fixed white-dot sights.

“It’s truly an honor to launch such a unique interpretation of the classic 1911 design,” Tommy Thacker, DDA president and CEO Tommy Thacker said in the press release. “Every detail of this distinguished platform has been researched and engineered to provide shooters a unique blend of classic function, modern reliability and accuracy. America has waited over 100 years for the DDA 1911, and this pistol is worth the wait.”

The DDA 1911 is available in either black or FDE, with limited selections available in two-tone stainless steel and full nickel boron coated configurations. The presser doesn’t list the MSRP.
