THE RD DIFFERENCE
About Roberts Defense
Roberts Defense was founded in 2011 with the goal to craft an affordable, American-built 1911 that is bench-built throughout its entire assembly process; never compromising the quality of parts, components, and materials used.
Never Compromise doesn’t mean, Never Improve. It means we do not make sacrifices in our parts that negatively impact the purpose of the product. Through specialized equipment and ground-breaking processes, our talented pistolsmiths are able to provide a high-quality firearm that can be relied upon for personal defense, law enforcement, or competition.
Our triggers are a true Videki design and feature a steel bow with a lightweight aluminum shoe in either a classic 3 hole or tactical “K” style.
Hammer, Sear, Disconnector
These critical components are at the heart of our crisp trigger pull. These are machined from solid stainless steel, then hand-prepped and polished to a mirror-like finish. The tool steel we use enables us to maintain the prepped surfaces and trigger pull for thousands of rounds.
Our match grade barrel is bar stock 416R SS, with a hardness of 40 Rockwell C, electrochemically machined (ECM) to our standards. The bores are an amazing 8 RMS smooth and, when air gauged, vary less than 2/10,000″.
