Armscor Twin Pines 1911A1 .45 ACP

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

We feel the collector or tinkerer might enjoy the inexpensive Twin Pines. But for the average buyer with little desire to be a gunsmith, spending more money for the near-foolproof performance of the latest 1911 pistols is probably a better idea.

The Twin Pines charm comes from vintage components such as its narrow tang grip safety, a solid hammer with extended spur and a brief rear sight. The sights worked surprisingly well and the hammer is convenient, but we felt the grip could bother the web of the hand.
The bushing and plug can be removed by hand. The small front sight appears as tiny as a pencil point from behind the grip.
