Roberts Defense® Recon Pro 1911 .45 ACP Semi-automatic Handgun. Lighter, better, faster.

Traditionally, reconnaissance was a role that was adopted by the cavalry. Speed was key in these maneuvers to gain an advantage over an adversary. Military commanders favored specialized small units for speed and mobility, and a key component was their specialized equipment adapted for dominance in any environment.

Roberts Defense® developed the Recon Series of pistols with these century-old principles in mind. The Recon Pro Pistol is an outstanding combination of modern materials with the traditional 1911 feel. All Recon Series pistol frames are machined from forged 7076 aircraft grade aluminum alloy, resulting in a 20% reduction in weight over a traditional steel frame. But that's only half the story.

All Roberts pistols feature frame rails that are hand-lapped to match the slide for "rides-like-glass" smoothness, and the barrel is hand-fit to ensure a nice, tight fit to the bushing. All internal components are hand-fit including the trigger, grip safety and thumb safety.

The surfaces are blended on the back of the slide and frame to create a custom look and feel. Roberts Defense may be new to the gun game, but their commitment to quality is as old-school as it gets, and the finished product is an outstanding take on the classic pistol.

Roberts Defense Recon Pro 1911 Semi-automatic Handgun special features:

  • Forged aluminum frame is 20% lighter than steel-framed 1911s
  • Match-grade barrel is bar stock 416R SS, electrochemically machined (ECM) to Roberts' demanding standards. The bores are an amazing 8 RMS smooth and, when air gauged, vary less than 2/10,000"
  • Enhanced tactical slide stop with an improved ledge for better control
  • Hammer, sear, and disconnector are machined from solid D7 tool steel, then hand prepped and polished to a mirror like finish for crisp trigger pull
  • Premium Videki trigger features a steel bow with a lightweight aluminum shoe in the classic tactical "K" style
  • Rugged Cerakote® finish on the frame
  • Premium VZ grips
  • Backed by a transferable lifetime manufacturer warranty
  • Made in the USA.
