Features Historically Pioneered by Detonics:

  • Functional reliability in a 1911-style pistol which was smaller than any ever manufactured before;
  • Cone-shaped barrel which required no bushing;
  • Recoil system with counter-recoiling multiple springs;
  • Recoil spring guide rod with buffer;
  • Springs easily removable for disassembly because they are not loaded under tension;
  • Ejection port lowered and scalloped for more positive ejection and to spare damage to brass;
  • First stainless steel semi-automatic pistol to overcome the metallurgical problem known as galling;
  • First semi-automatic to use a 3-Dot Sighting System
  • Loaded magazine indicator
  • Repositioned (forward) rear sight and sloped rear of slide in order to facilitate thumb cocking when the pistol is carried hammer down;
  • Heavier firing pin spring than conventional 1911-style pistols introduced as a safety feature against the pistol being dropped on a hard surface, thus helping guard against accidental discharge;
  • Feed ramp polished to mirror finish and chamber orifice rounded in order to enhance feeding;
  • Rugged internal extractor.

Not a bargain alternative to the traditional 1911-style semi-automatic, Detonics is the logical refinement.
