Tisas Partners with Civilian Marksmanship Program to Build 1911 Pistol

Tisas USA, a division of SDS Imports, the internationally recognized firearms manufacturer that provides high quality firearms at unrivaled value is pleased to announce a partnership with the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP).

Tisas is the first commercial manufacturer to build a 1911 pistol for CMP. The Tisas M1911 A1 is a museum-grade reproduction of a mid-war M1911A1 as it was issued during the Second World War, will also be available in the CMP version, which will have the CMP logo on it, and sold exclusively through CMP stores.

“We are quite honored and very excited to have partnered with the Civilian Marksmanship Program on this project,” stated SDS/Tisas USA CEO Tim Mulverhill. “Being able to take our historical accurate Tisas M1911 A1 and offer it in an exclusive CMP model is a great opportunity for Tisas to show their commitment to helping train and educate United States citizens in the responsible use of firearms.”

“The CMP is pleased to announce our partnership with Tisas USA to provide this extraordinary CMP-branded, museum-grade replica of the M1911A1 to our many customers and competitors,” said CEO, Jerry O’Keefe.  “This pistol will make a great companion piece to the surplus M1911A1 pistols sold by the CMP or just a great pistol on its own to shoot or collect! This is part of CMP’s effort to expand our pistol offerings both in sales and competitions.  For example, on the competitions side we look forward to our second year hosting the CMP Bianchi Cup May 21st-24th in Hallsville, MO with the Green Valley Rifle and Pistol Club.”

    Manganese Phosphate coating and the repro ejection port were the only two major discrepancies with their existing M1911A1 offering. Super cool. I’ll buy one. Who wouldn’t at $479?

    A shame they cannot be manufactured in the US

    I know it’s not clone correct, but this exact thing with a rail as a base model build gun.

      If you’re looking for a railed 1911 at a decent price, the Tisas Raider impressed me as a viable option. We had them in our shop from time to time, and initial impression was if you wanted to scratch a 1911 itch without breaking too hard into it, it was well built and would fit the bill.

      Just the .02 of a former gun counter guy.
