SDS Imports recently unveiled the new Tisas Nightstalker single stack 1911, which is available in three different calibers: 9mm, 10mm and .45 ACP.

The Tisas Nightstalker series of 1911 pistols take all the classic elements found in a traditionally configured “70 Series” Colt Style full size government pistol, while also adding some modern touches including standard ambidextrous safeties, an extended beavertail grip safety, a skeletonized hammer and a slide with modernized lightening cuts. The slide’s sight dovetails are also cut for the extremely popular Novak cut which is widely supported in the aftermarket sight and accessory markets. There is also a Picatinny rail on the dust cover which allows you to mount your choice of light, laser or accessory.

Compared to other models of the 1911, a “70 Series” configured gun, the Tisas Nightstalker has the traditional 1911 internals as originally designed by John Moses Browning in his original pistols over a century ago. This in turn makes them a favorite of aficionados of the 1911 platform.
