Sneak peek: Armscor 2014

Photos by IGG

Something new and something old from the Philippine’s biggest gun manufacturer. Arms Corporation of the Philippines (Armscor) is set to debut its latest 1911 variants on the next gun show this November.

“New” because the company’s expanded product line will include pistols chambered in both the 10mm Auto and the much sought-after .22 TCM.  “Old” because true innovation is nearly impossible in the age-old 1911 platform.

In our visit to the Armscor facility in Marikina City earlier this week, the R&D staff showed us the company’s latest offerings—weeks before their formal launch. In the meantime, these photos should give HDJ readers a taste of what is to come.
