Finally something without a light rail. Although I wish it were a little more rounded in that area.
The Vudoo Gun Works Priest 9mm Double Stack 1911 will be available around March 1st, with an MSRP of around $3,100. It will ship with two 19-round magazines and is going to be a great testament to what high manufacturing standards can produce. The Priest will be available in either 9mm or .45 ACP with multiple color tones to choose from.
I think its a ball end mill on a 45* angle to the slide. I do agree the machining work is a little odd. The slide grips look like an angled end mill.The forward slide cuts are weird.
Sorts ball cuts, sorta heavy bevel, sorta stirrup cut…….just odd
all comes down to what the buyer likes, my opinion really doesn’t matter much. With that being said, I won’t be a buyer this one.I think its a ball end mill on a 45* angle to the slide. I do agree the machining work is a little odd. The slide grips look like an angled end mill.
It does line up with the frame nice. I don't hate it.
I think less would be more with this gun.
A lot of people really like the metal grips on 2011s. You get improved ergonomics with grips like the Cheely E2 and PT Evo, as well as a lot more grip "when done right". People also tend to perceive a higher level of "quality" on the metal gripped 2011's, likely because some people can't help but associate polymer with cheap. That said, I do agree with you, there are quite a few situations where I still prefer the polymer grip "like August in Texas". Light weight, takes a good texture, and is good to go in any climate.I am confused as to why some many of these new 2011 pistols come with Cheely grips. Without gloves, the grips are a real hassle for outdoor shooting. In summer, it is like picking up a charcoal briquette, and, in winter, the heat is sucked right out of the fingers and palm. Furniture was added to guns for a reason; that reason is to avoid touching metal. Some metal contact is fine, but having the entire interface made of metal seems wrong to me. I much prefer the original STI/SVI polymer grip for any outdoor shooting.
And there is another one, using the same formula but this time with a Cheely trigger shoe.seems like a lot. there's also the ar15 maker turned 2011 maker type-A build. 2011 PACKAGE | BG Defense
So what happened to their supposed intro of a 2011 on/around Xmas 2022, anyone have factual info here?vulcan machine works is the one im most interested in seeing. they have a lot of time modifying staccatos so it'll be interesting to see what their own offerings are
Seems like everyone is jumping on the 2011 bandwagon these days, and many appear to be little more than "parts assemblers" using frames / slides / grips / barrels / etc. from other OEMS (Cheely, JEM, etc.), and then stamping their logo on it. Speaking of which, even the "V inside a circle" style Vudoo logo here looks VERY similar to that of Vulcan Machine Werks who is also entering the 2011 manufacturing space, as mentioned above. Sigh...The 2011s are starting to all look the same to me. Meh.
