Cabot Guns’ 1911 pistols represent a new standard in the firearms industry. They are the implementation of prideful engineering and precision manufacturing in all that we create – a series of promises on the part of Cabot Guns;
The knowledge that the pistol you now hold is the culmination of years of dedication to the pursuit of perfection, that it is the embodiment of precision, and that it represents an uncompromising commitment to furthering American excellence in design and manufacturing.
The promise that your Cabot Guns’ pistol is a truly 100% American product; from the American born solid blocks of billet steel which forms the backbone of all Cabot Guns, to the workers plying their precision trade in the rolling hills of Western Pennsylvania, right down to the optional Mammoth-Ivory grips harvested from the ancient ice fields of Alaska’s great frontier. Every piece of every component can be traced to American roots.
When you take home a Cabot Gun, not only do you lay hands on the “finest pistol ever produced,” (S.P. Fjestad; Author, Editor & Publisher, Blue Book of Gun Values) you also become a part of the Cabot family.

Founder & President
New for 2013 we introduce the “American Joe” from Cabot Guns. The American Joe is an art gun crossing the rubicon between firearms and art. Cabot commissioned rock star designer Joe Faris to design the art which is engraved on the American Joe. We asked Joe to design art for a 1911 which represents Detroit and Americana and the result is a limited edition run of a new iconic 1911, the American Joe.
America was built on hard work, innovation and freedom !
The American Joe 1911 is forged out of the same principles. This gun is a symbol of “American exceptionalism” at it’s finest. The tire tread “USA” represents the speed of the bullet leaving barrel as well as the Detroit Automotive innovative spirit which is at the heart of America. The wings embody a burst of Freedom as the tire peels out shifting into a Web pattern that is traditionally Tattoo on the elbow and is fitting as the pattern on the slide. (the elbow of the gun) A spiders web in nature is one of the most complex patterns and is broken-down everyday but built back up every night. In America we continue to build just as our forefathers did for generations. The American Flag hand grip represent the strength of this country as the hand wraps around the magazine with fortitude and resilience. This gun is built purely in America and shaped out of the finest block of steel. The American Joe is a true Red, White and Blue representation of the Glory, Romance and Legend of the 1911.
What’s better than an American Joe? How about a mirror image set of left and right handed American Joe’s with custom finish details.

Mirror Image Pistol Set
For a small percentage of the world, perfection simply isn’t enough. They never stop improving, never cease challenging themselves, and never tire of searching for the pinnacle of excellence. For this breed of the cultured elite, Cabot Guns now offers perfectly inverted matching 1911 pistol sets – fully customized to the exacting specifications of our clientele.
You’re old friends with the Jones 1911, our flagship pistol. You’re well acquainted with our National Standard, Jones Deluxe, and RangeMaster models. Most recently, you’ve been introduced to our young up-and-comer, the American Joe. You know quality when it’s placed into your hand, and you’re now ready to lay eyes on quality perfected. You’re ready to commission Cabot Guns to create solely for you a matched-set of our nonpareil 1911’s.
From the design table through to the final stages of finishing, our matched pistols are un-matched in their materials, design, and build qualities. We’ve again started with the same ultra-high quality American 4140 billet or stainless steel from which we breathe life into these masterpiece firearms. Our design team perfectly inverted their build plans to ensure that the pistol set you’ve commissioned is delivered as a true left and right handed 1911.
At Cabot Guns, we’re committed to doing the things our competitors believe to be impossible. Unlike other manufacturers, we didn’t stop simply with mirrored control surfaces and a reversed ejection port. We engineer your pistols to be perfectly inverted true-copies of one other, going so far as to reverse the rifling in the left-handed model to guarantee smooth, true felt recoil and follow through directed towards the shooter’s palm.
When you commission a matched set of Cabot 1911’s we pull fresh billet steel from our reserves and begin work on another pair of our master creations. Your set is fully customizable, not only with any of the 100% interchangeable parts of our entire Cabot Guns 1911 line, but also with any client-specific engraving or etching you may desire.
The possibilities are limited only by what you may dream; where others have told you that “the sky is the limit,” we at Cabot Guns are here to tell you – let yourself dream beyond the sky, let us create for you that which has never before been seen. You’ve seen what exists, now meet what is possible.
When you’re ready for the engineers, machinists, and craftsmen of Cabot Guns to turn what used to be your wildest dreams into your new realty, contact Cabot Guns at 1-855-THE-1911. Let us be the gatekeepers to your firearms fantasy.
Pistol sets are available in left and right handed pairs such as the Jones 1911, National Standard, the American Joe and the Black Diamond with pricing starting at $16,000. Our museum quality deluxe pistol sets such as the Jones Deluxe or National Standard Deluxe complete with custom french fitted cases are also available in the mid $20,000 range and have very limited availability. Bespoke commissions that include precious metals, engraving and Damascus are also available.
Deciding which 1911 will grace your wall, safe or side is by no means an easy decision. For many, there is no other option than an iteration of the full-sized timeless design laid down by John Moses Browning in the early 1900’s. For Cabot’s team, the 1911 obsession has birthed the S-class. The S100 – Cabot’s Government sized offering of 1911 entry-level-luxury brings the Cabot name into the reach of those searching for a factory-premium handgun a cut above the rest. Made in the USA – and with a frame and slide crafted from a solid block of 416 American steel – the S100 represents a commitment to American quality.
Cabot’s quality obsessed team decided to go hands-on with each pistol in the S Class lineup. Each pistol’s frame and slide receive a personal hand fitting in the final stages of assembly, ensuring that your S class is unlike any other – and that your new handgun has passed not only rigorous computer measures of quality control, but also passed the test of careful scrutiny by a breed of American craftsman committed to excellence, driven by passion, and satisfied with nothing less than perfection. You’ll still find the finishing touches you’ve come to expect from a Cabot Gun and a few more – a barrel beautifully crowned flush to the bushing, chamfered slide pin stop hole, magwell beveled to enable faster and more consistent magazine swaps, and Cabot’s signature star engraved at the end of the full-length guide rod. Cabot’s perfection-obsessed team cut no corners in our creation of affordable luxury. Nothing’s been overlooked in creating the S100. For the connoisseur of the 1911, none could be a finer embodiment of pure functionality wrapped in black G-10 grips, or in optional Walnut or countless other options. The rear of the pistol carries Cabot’s signature Trinity Stripes and checkered cocking serrations, providing for aesthetically pleasing functionality with every rack of the slide.
Standard atop this newborn piece of 1911 history is Cabot’s front Blind Sight. Fitted from the front of the pistol, the bushing completely covers the mount-point, leaving no unsightly dovetail along the side of the slide. Serrations run along the entirety of the top of the slide, from the rear sights to the chamber and on to meld seamlessly with the front sight, eliminating the potential for slide glare, and naturally leading the shooter’s eye to target. A Full length sight radius ensures that it rests on the shoulders of the shooter to capture the full potential of the S100.
The S Class of pistols brings the Cabot Gun more into the reach of those aiming to add our obsession with precision to their arsenal. The S100 Government Model brings to the 1911 purist a touch of modern styling, but preserves the fit and function of John Moses Browning’s original perfection. Know you’ll never need to enact Cabot’s lifetime warranty, but rest assured that the entire Cabot team stands behind the S100.
Also available in full left-handed configuration, this masterpiece comes in a stainless finish, or as an option for added protection and distinction Cabot’s black nitride finish. The S100 awaits your orders. Take full advantage of Cabot’s mirroring process, and for the first time bring home a pair of perfectly matched left and right handed 1911′s.
For daily carry, many refuse to stray from the 1911 pattern of perfection. Through years of modification and iteration after iteration of “improvement,” the industry has created variations on the original John Moses Browning design tailored for carry – accomplished in part through modification of the internal design and function of the hallowed 1911. At Cabot, this departure from perfection was deemed unsatisfactory. At Cabot, instead we do it right, and we do it better. With those words on our lips and that promise in our blood, we birthed the Cabot S103 Commander – a reengineered vision of the perfection embodied in John Moses Browning’s pistol model of 1911.
What separates the Cabot S103 from an industry oversaturated with imitations truly lies beneath. Where other Commander models fundamentally alter the 1911 design by shortening frame rails, adjusting the cycle length to shorten rearward travel, and affecting the timing of recoil and feeding, the Cabot remains true to internal ordnance prints. To the eye, the S103 appears a standard commander-length slide and frame, but upon takedown the shooter discovers that the internal dimensions of a full-size 5” barreled 1911 have been preserved. Your Cabot S103 Commander has the same cycle length and internal function as the ever dependable sidearm designed by Browning which has served armed forces worldwide for over a hundred years – “full cycle technology” as our engineers have termed it. The proven pedigree of the 1911 has been re-engineered in carry-size to ensure better feeding, consistent ejection, and above all – reliability. You’ll sacrifice nothing in electing to carry the Cabot S103 at your side.
Second only to the importance of reliability in a gun designed for carry is that of grip – one which is easily obtained, effortlessly maintained, and repeatable ad infinitum. To this end, the Cabot S Class has created a functional beauty, all the while sacrificing neither. Cabot’s premier wire-EDM cut Tristar trigger set to 3.5 – 4.0 pounds of pull is housed in a trigger guard contoured and relieved for the shooter’s hand – a high-rise cut underneath provides for a more positive grip on the pistol. With precision machined rhombus checkering along the main spring housing and full face of the front strap, a firm and consistent grip is the hallmark of Cabot’s entry into the 1911 carry game. Further expanding on Cabot’s attention to detail, the S-Class comes wrapped in Fibonacci inspired spiral designed grips, featuring the Cabot shield beautifully inlaid into the wood.
Standard atop this innovatively-classic-carry piece is Cabot’s front Blind Sight – fitted from the front of the pistol leaving no unsightly exposed dovetail along the side of the slide, no potential snag points, and eliminating the possibility of sight drift. This feature allows Cabot engineers to run serrations along the entirety of the top of the slide – from the rear sights to the chamber, and on to meld seamlessly with the front sight in an arrow pattern – eliminating the potential for slide glare, and naturally leading the shooter’s eye to target.
No detail goes overlooked in Cabot’s S103 Commander. This pistol is hand-fitted frame to slide, adding a touch of personalized craftsmanship to an already perfect design. The barrel is beautifully crowned flush to the bushing, the magwell beveled to enable faster and more consistent magazine swaps, and the full-length guide rod engraved with Cabot’s signature star adds the final touch of class to the functionality you’ve come to expect from Cabot Guns.
The S Class of pistols brings the Cabot Gun more into the reach of those aiming to add obsession to their arsenal. The S103 brings to those hunting for daily-carry perfection a compact, reliable and concealable 1911. Take command of your daily-carry decision. Available in left-handed configuration and finished in stainless or as an option Cabot’s black nitride finishes, the S103 Commander awaits your orders. Take full advantage of Cabot’s mirroring process, and for the first time bring home a pair of perfectly matched left and right handed 1911 Commanders.
