Cabot Guns is introducing two new pistols for 2018: a sleek 1911 dubbed “The Icon” and a high-end carry gun called the “Gentleman’s Carry.”

Hyped by the company as its “newest, most distinctly unique 1911 ever,” the Cabot Icon 1911 boasts a modern, monolithic design. The gun is made entirely from 416 stainless billet steel and is available in government and commander size. The government variant features a five-inch national match grade barrel with a reverse crown, while the commander version has a 4.25-inch barrel. Both models sport a “Cabot Icon Racking Button” on the left side of the slide. The gun is available in either .45 ACP or 9mm.

Also included here is a countersunk and recessed slide stop notch; aluminum trigger; lowered and flared ejection port; flat top slide; scratch proof slide stop; Cabot’s rhombus cut front strap checkering; main spring housing with 24 lpi checkering; beveled magwell; stainless monochrome grips; beavertail grip safety and a full-length guide rod.

The Cabot Icon 1911 ships with two 8-round magazines in special black cases made in Italy. The price is $4,995. If you add an alligator holster the company is offering, the price jumps up another $500.

The meticulously crafted Gentleman’s Carry pistol is Cabot’s second new gun for 2018. Chambered in .45 ACP or 9mm, it features a 4.25-inch flushed and recessed crowned barrel with Cabot barrel brushing; bobtail cut frame; frame and slide machined from billet 416 stainless steel; hand polished feed ramp; Cabot Black Diamond 13 degree slide serrations; black aluminum TriStar trigger; recessed slide stop notch; checkered walnut grips adorned with the Cabot medallion; matte black finish and tritium front and rear sights.

The Gentleman’s Carry ships with two 8-round mags and is priced at $4,795.
