Yost-Bonitz 1* Custom Model 1911 A1

The 1* logo has become kind of the unofficial logo of the SWAT guys, and those working in harm's way. The need for a reliable, no-frills and no nonsense pistol has never been more important. After all, when things go bad, we only have "one ass to risk". The slogan and logo were originated by famed gun writer Gary Paul Johnston, and he has authorized Yost-Bonitz to use the logo on selected guns from their shop. I asked for additional modifications to be added thus this is not the standard package.


Modifications and parts include:

  • Deluxe trigger job, using a Yost-Bonitz aluminum trigger, and a tool steel sear.

  • Tuned 2 3/4 pound trigger pull

  • The hammer is high cut and bobbed to prevent bite.

  • Hard chrome finish **Not standard
