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 marketing method to support it has changed. Driven by a paradigm shift regarding "service", Pistol Dynamics has formulated a business model that hopefully blends art with service that customers have come to expect in this new, fast-paced world, at least to the greatest extent possible. We understand that many customers don't have the patience to order products that have extended lead times to delivery, so we are attempting something new for us....
Pistol Dynamics '23
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.
During the "pandemic" we were forced to suspend order taking for custom handguns and as of 2023 that decision is now written in stone. 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 reduce time between product exposure on this website and delivery. It will also allow some flexibility for the buyer to select certain available options. 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, rather 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 they will 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 stated 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 in limited quantity. There are only two qualified gun builders in the shop, and there are no plans to change that in the foreseeable future, so please be patient while we kick these proceedings into gear. Further, to get where we want to go we need to limit the number of models that we make available for sale. 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 similar to the unit above. 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 so please keep checking back.
