Visiting Carolina Arms Group Again

North Carolina is home to one of the best, most advanced 1911 Custom builders in the world, Carolina Arms Group.  You’ve read about them before here, and you might again in the future.   The owner if CAG is a fellow I call a friend… so it’s not unlikely.
I’ve watched the growth of CAG go from essentially one man with a file to a full fledged Gun Manufacturer.    And along the way, the company has evolved in a way that’s quiet remarkable.  The quality control gets tighter and tighter, and the standards get higher and higher.  The gun themselves have always been amazing.  But now I have to admit, these are the best 1911’s money can buy.  Period.  Let me show you why… Continue reading Visiting Carolina Arms Group Again

Carolina Arms Group


The new 1911 Maker in North Carolina is Carolina Arms Group.    These guns are legit.  I’d put them right up there with Les Baer and Ed Brown.


The actions, triggers, overall fitment – flawless.  Very smooth.  Great triggers… These are everything you want in a 1911.


Now, CAG is a new company so they don’t have that name and reputation.   But if you know 1911’s and how they should be built – and not just Name Dropping and Marketing Buzzwords… and you examine a CAG 1911… You’ll know these are exquisite 1911’s.20150829_095841I took the opportunity to test fire their new Commander Length pistol.   It was flawless.   Cycled perfectly, and it didn’t just shoot point of aim – point of impact…. It was like it shot to “Point of Will”.  It was telekinetic… Exactly like a fine 1911 should be.   I wanted to put a round “THERE” and the round went there.  You are not just hitting your target… you are placing your shots on the target where you want them to go.

These guns are built with all premium level parts… Everything is forged billet.  Nothing even remotely MIM or Cast like how some high level 1911 makers are sneaking into their production… These are true custom built 1911’s.
The Price does reflect that… Around 3 Large.  But you really do get what you pay for here.   These guns are right up there with the very best.
