The South Paw 1911
The South Paw, A True Left Handed Pistol
Cabot Guns is a niche manufacturer of firearms, lefties are a niche group of shooters – the pairing of the two individualities could not be more fortuitous. Your entire life, you’ve settled for the “right” way of doing things. At Cabot Guns, we settle for nothing. Let us introduce you to the “left” way of doing things, let us introduce you to the South Paw – a dedicated left-handed 1911 pistol
To simply state that Cabot’s South Paw 1911 is a “lefty 1911” would be akin to calling the 1911 “just a pistol.” Cabot engineers tackled the issue of developing a true left-handed firearm at the design level, re-engineered John Browning’s design as if it had been originally intended as a left-handed pistol, then plied our trademark precision-obsessed manufacturing process in creating the South Paw.
Starting with ordnance prints, our engineers went about rebuilding the classic 1911 as if it had been designed for lefties from the ground up. Where the current industry tackles the issue of creating a pistol for South Paw’s with terms such as “ambidextrous safety,” and “reversible magazine release,” Cabot went one further – and then some. We inverted John Moses Browning’s 1911 design perfectly. Everything, down the rifling in the barrel has been mirrored and tailored for use specifically by those of the left-handed-persuasion. This pistol comes with the Cabot Guarantee that it will exceed National Match standards for accuracy right out of the box, and will do so for the lefty without you having to chase your shot.
In accordance with our commitment to excellence, innovation, and the shooting culture, we’ve graced the slide of the South Paw with our innovative Blind Sight. Available with white-dot, tritium or gold dot accents, this sight is dovetailed from the front of the slide; rather than being staked from the top as in standard designs. For the shooter this means a seamless transition between slide and sight, Cabot’s obsessive precision incorporated even into this, the smallest of details. Speaking of details; look closely at the paw print meticulously integrated into the slide of the South Paw – it too is left-handed.
The precision details and innovation do not stop there; in addition to offering a standard blued finish, we’re also pioneering a finish never before seen in the firearms industry – Nitride Penn Gray – a durable and unique touch of elegance that ensures the pistol you carry holds up to the life you live and survives the adventures you seek.
No longer is a left-handed shooter forced to settle for a right-handed pistol with ambidextrous controls; instead, we’ve created a 1911 that’s all your own.
Stop thinking about it, you already know that this is the pistol your shooting hobby deserves; you’ve earned the right to a pistol as individually perfect as you are, bring home your South Paw and become a part of the Cabot Guns family.
Available in Penn Gray Nitride finish as shown above or in traditional blued finish.
