New Detonics Combat Master.

First time I’ve ever seen a 1911, or any automatic pistol, with an octagon barrel. Detonics is going to be releasing the 3rd iteration of the Combat Master. It has some other interesting features. The front sight is on the barrel instead of the slide. This is to help rapid follow up shots. The front sight moves very little allowing the shooter to regain a sight picture faster. Also somewhat unique is the front slide serrations on the subcompact model. Most Commander sized guns just have rear serrations, let alone the 3″ guns.

Note the octagon barrel and barrel mounted front sight.
