Rob Schauland continues to devote himself to perfecting the traditional 1911, offering shooters everything they need and nothing they don’t. He is committed to remaining true to the classic design that has stood the test of time, while pouring himself into the refined details that set his guns apart from the rest.

The carry-sized platform includes a 4.25 inch barrel and a unique checkering on the front strap and main spring housing with horizontally checkered edges for maximum comfort. This model also features custom-designed ACW rear sights, tritium front sight standard, traditional bluing or hard chrome finish, ball cuts on the slide, a unique round hammer, and a variety of grip options including checkered, ironwood, American Holly, and Ebony. Price for the ACW Classic Carry 1911 is $2795. Lead time is 3-4 months.

John Browning, known as the Father of Automatic Fire, created the 1911 design and Rob Schauland continues his life’s pursuit: devotion to improving the craft of the 1911 pistol. The ACW 1911s are loaded with special features and custom designed enhancements. Schauland’s 30-year career focusing on the 1911 has resulted in fine-tuned gunsmithing skills, which are evident in the superb blending elements in his creations.
