The Enhanced Bi-Tone series, along with the Ultra Compact, are Officers Model-sized guns.
The Enhanced Bi-Tone, shown with a full-size 1911 for scale and also sporting Hogue's fancy checkered panels and grip tape, illustrate a couple of the personal touches shooters can easily add to these guns. We also learned they will accept standard magazines, creating a "gun on a stick" mode.
Porting on the V10 model consists of eight 0.10-inch-diameter holes in rows of four placed 0.10 inch apart, beginning 0.35 inch back from the muzzle. One row sits at 1 o’clock and the other at 11 o’clock, with the top of the barrel being high noon. The slide is correspondingly relieved on both sides of the plain blade front sight.
