Cabot Gun Launches Mirror Image Pistol Set Program
Cabot models of the Jones 1911, Jones Deluxe, National Standard, RangeMaster and American Joe are now available as identical and perfectly inverted left and right handed pistol sets.
In 2011 Cabot Gun Company made its debut at the National Rifle Association’s annual convention in
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It was there that a prospective customer approached Cabot’s team, inquired
about their 1911’s, handled them, and then asked whether Cabot would ever consider making a lefthanded
Returning to Cabot Guns’ headquarters post-convention, founder Rob Bianchin presented the concept to
the company team. He remembers the silence around the table as the idea was considered. The team
began immediately working on the specifics of what would be needed to develop an inverted 1911.
During that very meeting, the concept began to take shape. “Right there we decided that we could do this
and the next day engineering was engaged in a prototype.”
A mere two years from concept to production, Cabot now offers custom mirror image pistol sets
comprised of left and right handed 1911s built to Cabot’s exceptional standards.
Cabot models of the Jones 1911, Jones Deluxe, National Standard, RangeMaster and American Joe are
now available in sets comprising both a right-handed, and an identical, completely inverted left-handed
pistol. Cabot Guns is the only producer in the market which is capable of offering such sets designed and
built from the ground up.
“We’re taking the time and the care to do what other gun companies are just not doing,” stated Bianchin.
“Our left-handed gun is completely inverted which includes not only the ejection port and thumb controls,
but we’ve also gone so far as to invert the rifling twist in the barrel so the torque of the gun and its felt
recoil is correct when shot left handed.”
