We recall fondly the early Reagan Years when the first Detonics Combat Masters began showing up here in the West Tennessee Hills. We tried them on our improvised ranges, and they printed tighter groups than our dolled up Series 70 Colts, in a much smaller package. Detonics pistols have earned their stripes, and our respect, over the past quarter Century, and the effects of that pioneering design helped preserve John M. Browning's firm hand on compact pistols. Even though Colt followed suit with their Officer Size Compacts within a decade, the Detonics brand holds a fond and respected place in our hearts, even more endeared by the Company's tenure in our Sister State of Georgia. Here is one of the last brand new specimens of the Detonics pistols manufactured in Pendergrass, Georgia, a Combat Master compact .45 ACP, all stainless steel. It features the original, innovative Detonics system with its trademark bell-nosed cone ramped bull barrel, integral slide bushing, full length two piece guide rod and triple spring system whose unquestionable accuracy capability has left a profound mark on 1911 handgunning. Trigger is traditional serrated stainless with overtravel adjustment. This specimen is brand new in its original black plastic case, but it has no papers or instruction manual. We acquired it on closeout from Detonics' own distribution system because it was an excellent value in a World Class handgun. The fact that it was manufactured in the South influenced us as well, the best independently manufactured firearm in our region. Caliber, of course, is .45 ACP. Grips are traditional Walnut Diamond design checkered with the Detonics Logo. Finish is very attractive, very durable natural stainless steel. The distinctive Detonics Combat Master slide houses no-nonsense black low profile combat sights with a compact 4 inch sight radius. The barrel itself measures only 3 ½ inches; and capacity is 6 plus 1. This Combat Master comes with two of its Factory Metalforms Stainless magazines. Grip frame is a full inch shorter than standard 1911 Government size pistols, but the Combat Master will accept any .45 Government or even Colt Officer or Defender Magazine. Hammer is traditional round Commander style, and Mainspring Housing is serrated stainless steel. These fine pistols command prices in our area of $1,000 apiece if indeed a person can find one nowadays. Own the pistol in the photo or its identical mate, however, for only $ 729.95

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony.
