"Without a doubt, this is the finest set of non-engraved semi-automatic pistols ever manufactured in the United States," says firearms authority S.P. Fjestad.
CABOT, Pa., Oct. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Never one to rest on his laurels, Rob Bianchin and Cabot Guns LLC have just released a new set of pistols called the "Presidentials." This exquisite set consists of a mirror image left- and right-handed 1911 style pistol in the Jones Deluxe configuration and presented in a custom Marvin Huey case. The left-hand gun of this set is a true left-handed 1911 built from the ground up with a wide left ejection port and inverted controls. It also has reverse rifling.
The fabrication of any Cabot pistol is as high-tech as it gets. As Rob proudly puts it, "The only file involved with our guns is the electronic one where the work order is contained." The construction is labor intensive from in-house hardened tool steel but with over 120 separate operations. CNC machining, which is considered precision work by the firearms industry, is what Cabot considers its rough work before the higher precision techniques are employed. Techniques such as EDM Sink, EDM Wire, CNC Jig Grinding, and CNC surface grinding modalities are employed. The fit of the guns between tang and rail is 0.0005 inches and they are perfectly straight. This accuracy is achieved through CNC surface grinding, which is ten times more accurate than CNC machining and is controlled to 20,000,000th of an inch.
The Presidential sets, like all other Cabots, are the collective work of a team of over 70 of America's finest journeymen toolmakers, engineers, and master craftsmen. Cabot's Jones Deluxe pistols are hand polished - no buffing wheels - for days under a microscope using stones, rubbing, and diamond compounds so that the flats are exactly flat with no broken edges and the rounds are truly round. The hand polishing is completed to a 2 micron finish, which is like a mirror. So the mirror image pistol sets also have a mirror image finish. Looking into the side of the slide reveals a true reflection without the fun house mirror effect. The guns are finished in a double bluing to match the prized black mirror finish.
"One of the last things I told Rob on my way to the Denver airport back in 2011 was, 'This Cabot Jones Model is the Rolls Royce of 1911s.' Nothing has changed, except now you can buy a set!" said S.P. Fjestad.
