Oriskany Arms, a leading firearms manufacturer, is thrilled to announce the launch of its highly anticipated Generation 2, 1911 line at the 2024 SHOT Show. After months of meticulous development, Oriskany Arms introduces this new tier, featuring an array of enhancements and innovative features that set it apart from the standard offerings.

The Generation 2 frames are crafted with precision machining, boasting a 25 LPI front strap checkering and an undercut trigger guard for optimal performance.

Users can choose between radiused and tri-top styles, coupled with traditional or wide cocking serrations, all available in carbon and stainless steel options.

Options include PVD (Vapor Deposition), Color Case Hardening, TAC CO coatings, as well as Gold Plating. The Generation 2 pistols also come standard with upgraded controls, featuring extra-wide thumb safeties, slide stops, and new hammers for an enhanced shooting experience.

Oriskany Arms continues to build on its commitment to providing a diverse range of features. The Generation 2 line joins an already extensive list of finishes, such as Matte Black Oxide, Matte Reverse Two Tones, Matte Boron Nitride (Nickel Boron), Cerakote Finishes, Mirror Polished Black Oxide, and Reverse Two Tones. Existing modifications include various sight options, the ability to add an Ambidextrous Thumb Safety, Extended Magazine Wells, Custom Laser Engraving on the slide and frame, and even Custom Serial Numbers.
