Chambered in .45 ACP, as a 1911 should be, Tisas USA offers the PX9 Night Stalker 1911. True to form, the single-stack 1911 utilizes Colt Series 70-based internals. Unlike other pistols in its PX9 series, Tisas forgoes the polymer construction for forged steel, in keeping with 1911 tradition. The result is a modern-ish take on the 1911 that won’t break the bank.
The Tisas PX9 Night Stalker 1911
Constructed of forged carbon steel, the full-size frame features a four-slot Picatinny rail for attaching accessories. Housed within the all-steel frame is Colt 70 Series internals, providing the experience many are used to from a 1911. Like the frame, the slide also features a forged carbon steel construction. Both the frame and slide include a platinum grey Cerakote finish for long-lasting durability.
The rear of the slide contains wide patterned cocking serrations for easy manipulation in any condition. Additionally, the front end of the slide includes four lightening ports to help reduce the overall weight. Although it is slight, the ejection port is lowered and flared for proper ejection of spent casings.
Riding atop the slide is a Novak-style U-Night rear sight coupled with a tritium/orange front sight. Both sights feature dovetail construction for easy adjustment. Housed within the slide is the 5-inch cold hammer forged, ramped barrel chambered in .45 ACP. The barrel and all controls feature a black Cerakote finish, providing a two-tone aesthetic against the grey frame and slide.
Providing the interface are Night Stalker Stealth Tri-Cut black aluminum grips, giving the PX9 Night Stalker a modern appeal. Likewise, checkering on the front strap and mainspring housing offer a solid purchase of the grip. The grip also features a beavertail safety that works with the ambidextrous thumb safety for additional safe handling.
Just forward the grip is the contoured trigger guard with an undercut for the middle finger. Placed within the trigger guard is the Night Stalker Stealth trigger with a flat face. The PX9 Night Stalker ships with two 8-round magazines.
The Tisas PX9 Night Stalker 1911 will be available soon, with an MSRP of $749.99. For more info, please visit TisasUSA.com.
