DoubleStar's 1911 has been a four-year labor of love for Jack Starnes, president of J&T Distributing, a DoubleStar affiliate company. DoubleStar started with a forged steel frame to ensure maximum strength and accuracy. The 1911 offers a parkerized, mil-spec finish and 1913 rail for laser, light and scope attachments. At 8 inches in length and 38 ounces unloaded, the handgun features a 5-inch stainless steel barrel and a Novak white dot sight. The 1911 is standard with National Match stainless barrel, Greider trigger and Ed Brown's Memory Grip Safety. Grips are available in Ergo, Stryder, standard, fancy walnut and even exotic woods.
