Auto Ordnance continues rolling out custom style 1911s, announcing the latest entry in the form of a Custom Case Hardened 1911.

Using an Auto-Ordnance G1 1911 as the base, the case hardened version sports a custom look with an artistic, swirling appearance. Equipped with an all-steel, 5-inch frame, the 1911 is chambered in .45 ACP and features checkered wood grips with the US military logo.

“Taking a classic 1911 to the next level without diminishing its history is no easy feat, but adding an even more classic finish formally raises the bar. Auto-Ordnance has done just that with the new GI Series 1911 with ‘case hardened’ finish,” Auto-Ordnance said in a news release. “This time honored tradition of working steel produces distinct and unique patterns of color long sought after by firearms aficionados.”

The Case Hardened 1911, model 1911GCH, ships with a seven-round magazine and a MSRP of $1,327. Interested parties should contact their local firearms dealers to purchase.
