Welcome to Pistol Dynamics 2023. On the surface the product looks the same, the high level of quality remains and our continuous striving for elusive 'perfection' continues. However, how we get to the end product and the market method to support it has changed. Driven by what the world has come to re-define the meaning of 'service' Pistol Dynamics has formulated a business model that hopefully blends art with the service (to the greatest extent possible) that customers have become to expect in this new world of instant gratification. We understand that many customers have the patience to order a product that have extended lead times to delivery, so we are attempting something 'new'....
Pistol Dynamics has restructured how it operates, defines the product it sells and the method by which it is marketed. We have formally discontinued the traditional process of accepting and fulfilling orders for bespoke custom 1911’s. You can learn more here.
As of January 1, 2023 we will only be accepting orders for firearms that are technically complete, in the white and ready for final details and finish to be added. This will result in a minimal time between product exposure on this website and delivery. It will also allow some latitude for the buyer to select certain available option. As these exclusive pieces become available for sale they will be featured on a dedicated ‘Available Now’ page. We will not be offering any kind of pre-order or reservation option on handguns in process, they will be sold on a ‘first come’ basis. However, we will notify those who have subscribed to our email listing when handguns become available and be given a window of opportunity to prepare for the release ahead of formal listing. Once a unit has been posted for sale, a price for that pistol and available options will be clearly defined to assist interested parties with a decision to move forward or not.
These weapons will continue to be individually produced by hand from the ground up and quite limited in quantity. There are only two qualified gun builders in the shop and there is no intention to change that in the foreseeable future, so please be patient while we kick these proceedings into gear. Therefor, to get where we want to go we need to limit the number of models that we make available for sale because this concept negates our ability to accept 'bespoke' orders. We will be drawing on our experience on what customers really want but if we need to make adjustments, we will do so.
To start we will offer three handgun platforms based on our highly regarded 'SCOUT' pistol. This will include a full size traditional 5" model, a semi-compact 'Commander' model and a 4" 'Officer's' variant. Calibers will be limited to 45ACP, 40S&W and 9mm Parabellum. Initial units are in process now but it will take some time to have them ready for exposure
