A Pennsylvania Tradition of Precision
A Pennsylvania Tradition of Precision.
What happens when America’s best engineers, machinists and master craftsmen set out to build a gun from scratch with the same technology and dedication they use for nuclear reactors and fighter jets? Cabot Guns, that’s what. Along with a new standard of uncompromising quality and precision that puts other gun company pistols to shame.
At Cabot we know that how you build something changes the essence of how it works. Which is why we’re control freaks who have spared no effort or expense when it comes to each and every phase of the design and manufacture of our 1911 pistols from the ultrasonic testing of the raw materials down to the striping on the finish. And we don’t just do it because we love it. We do it because nobody else can.
That’s because Cabot Guns’ 1911 pistols are made in collaboration with Penn United Technologies, the “MIT of the tool and die industry” and a pioneering manufacturer of precision components for the energy, medical, defense and aerospace industries. Our shared foundation is built on a strong belief in family, God and country, and the philosophy that you should never stop striving to become better at what you do.
And that partnership means we don’t just make precision 1911 pistols. We also make the machines that make them. Which translates to superior quality control and the ability to insure that every process is perfectly repeatable every time. We’re an American gun manufacturer with advanced and proprietary metallurgical expertise. Heck, we even mix our own carbide. And it takes four months to make one of our guns.
Fact is no other gun manufacturer in existence can build what we build the way we build it and the proof is in our tolerances — we guarantee the fit between our frames and slides is exactly 0.001 inches or less. And we can provide documentation with your gun purchase to prove it. Penn United’s proprietary technology often works with tolerances of 20,000,000 of an inch. That’s a hair split into 3 parts and then each part split 10 times again. Yep, we split hairs too.
