Guncrafter Industries introduced two long slide 1911s to its pistol lineup: the Model No. 4 chambered in .50 GI and the No Name Longslide chambered in 10 mm.

The Guncrafter Model No. 4 is built to wring the best possible accuracy, durability and ballistics out of the big-bore .50 GI cartridge. Barrel length on the Model No. 4 is a full six inches long, which increases sight radius and velocity. According to the company, the six-inch barrel allows for a 25 percent increase in velocity and a 60 percent increase in muzzle energy over the standard five-inch barrel. The Model No. 4 features a Melonite finish for increased durability.

The No-Name Longslide is the company's other offering, bringing a full 6-inch 10 mm barrel in a 1911 frame. The unique name of this long slide pistol is an homage to the iconic John Browning design. Guncrafter aimed to make a clean, pure 1911 that had no extra frills. In keeping with this goal, the slide features no billboard markings and only front and rear slide serrations. Like its .50 GI cousin, the 10 mm No-Name features a black Melonite Finish.

The suggested retail price on the Model 4 in .50 GI is $4,125, while the 10 mm No-Name sells for $2,695.
