The MARS Armament – M1911 Twight Hard Use Gun (THUG).
The customer supplied Colt Rail Gun has all new internals and a new beavertail and safety machined from bar stock. The hammer is made from tool steel and lightened for better lock-time. A gen.2 MARS mag guide is used with a hand blended interior.
There are ball cuts on the slide nose, a French border on the slide shoulder, and a bevel on the slide bottom.
The pistol has the MARS reliability package finished with tungsten and black Cerakote.
