Buy Tisas 1911 Bantam Pistol Online We were firmly established in the era of the polymer handgun about the time of the 1911’s 100th birthday. Subcompact polymer pistols chambered in 9 mm are now the most widely used handguns for self-defense ten years later. Given such environment, it might seem strange for a business to commit resources to the creation of a new line of 1911 handguns. The truth is that the time-tested workhorse is still in demand, particularly in small and light-weight variations with the original.45 ACP chambering.
SDS Imports, based in Knoxville, Tennessee, realized this and set out to provide high-quality 1911s at reasonable prices by partnering with Tisas, a gun maker with Turkish roots. Since its founding in 1993, Tisas has created a wide variety of handguns and infantry weapons. A 1911, however, was not in its stable. SDS Imports made a difference by sending engineers and shooters with American training to Tisas to lead the company through the manufacturing process. Currently, SDS Imports is bringing roughly a dozen different 1911 versions into the nation. They are priced $1,200. The 1911 Bantam Carry 45 is the most recent model.
