With a frame, slide, and barrel forged from stainless steel, the name of Auto-Ordnance's new M1911-style pistol is obvious. 

The Pennsylvania-based subsidiary of Kahr Firearms recently announced the new Stainless 1911 .45 ACP model that comes standard with a match-grade 5-inch barrel with a full-length guide rod and user-adjustable trigger. The slide runs both forward serrations and lightening cuts for a faster lock time. Other features include a skeletonized hammer, extended beavertail grip safety, and extended magazine release.

"Customers know Auto-Ordnance for its long history of producing quality, historical American firearms," said Jodi DePorter, director of marketing for Kahr Firearms Group. "They trust the brand to bring an exceptional 1911 to market, and the new stainless model carries on that tradition.”
