EAA / Girsan 1911s

EAA and Girsan are teaming up to bring two new 1911s to these shores. The first is the Influencer, a pistol designed to cater to a wide range of preferences. The Influencer is offered in multiple barrel lengths, including 5-, 4.4- and 3.4-inch-barrel model options and an array of calibers such as 9mm, 45 ACP, 10mm and 38 Super, ensuring that shooters can find the perfect fit for their needs.

On top of all those choices for barrel length and calibers, the Influencer also has three unique finishes: all-black, two-tone tungsten and black camo. The slide of the Influencer is cut for the RMS/RMSc footprint, and the frame has ambidextrous safeties, a three hole trigger, extended beavertail, magazine well and an accessory rail on models with longer barrel lengths. Further back, there are comfortable polymer grips for secure firing platform.  

“Our competitors can’t keep up, we are continually innovating and collaborating with our partners at Girsan to ensure we deliver the best possible product while maintaining the best price points in the industry,” said Keith Bernkrant, the President of EAA.

The second pistol is the Untouchable, a 1911 available in  three barrel lengths; 5 inches, 4.4 inches and 3.4 inches. Customers can choose from either 9mm or .45 ACP, as well as different finish options.
