Cabot, PA (PRWEB) May 23, 2011
Cabot Gun Company, LLC (“Cabot Guns”), a new American gun company and the only gun made in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, received certification from the Architect of the Capitol that a 5 foot by 8 foot flag was flown over the United States Capitol on April 26, 2011 to commemorate the launch of Cabot Guns. The flag was dedicated to God, Country and Family, stated John Renda, an attorney for the company.
One hundred percent made in America, Cabot Guns is a collaboration between Cabot Guns and Penn United Technologies, Inc. Together, they design, build and market four model 1911 style handguns which set a new standard in gun manufacturing technology. Cabot Guns President, Robert Bianchin, commented, “America is a nation which fosters innovation, entrepreneurship and quality, and Cabot Guns is the embodiment of these traits.”
Four model 1911 style pistols were debuted by Cabot Guns at the NRA Annual Meeting and Exhibit in Pittsburgh, PA, a week ago to much fanfare. Cabot Guns offers the world's first post-custom pistol. They have successfully engineered 1911 pistols which exceed National Match Standards out of the box with fully interchangeable parts - unheard of today. Unlike custom guns which require hand fitting, Cabot Guns are machined using proprietary technology developed by Penn United where the frame and slide clearance is precisely 0.001 inches, every time. “Our parts are clones,” remarked Bianchin. "This is our long-earned and long-invested proprietary technology. Not only are our guns a mechanical engineering triumph but have been designed with aesthetic beauty in mind. 'True Americana' – that’s what we are building. Our guns will be passed down for generations and revered for their quality. We are proud to be part of history now at the US Capitol. This marks yet another step in the evolution of our young yet bold venture to offer discerning gun lovers the best of what America has to offer."
