AlphaTech Firearms Division
By Joe Worley, New Business Development
After several customer requests to do so, AlphaTech applied for, and received, a Type 7 FFL on February 14, 2011. That day was coincidentally the exact day of the 100th year anniversary of John M. Browning’s patent for the infamous m1911!
AlphaTech just had to produce some 1911 handguns in celebration. Anything else just wouldn’t do. So, we embarked upon a journey to produce a well-crafted 1911 seeking help from Bob Marvel, one of the leading 1911 aficionados. Bob taught AlphaTech’s master tool and die makers how to build a world-class 1911. AlphaTech then applied current machining technologies along with Bob’s imparted 1911 gunsmithing knowledge to produce some remarkable guns. They look and function well beyond imagination.
Today, we still make to order custom 1911’s but strive to stay close to our roots: contract manufacturing. AlphaTech currently works with various firearm companies to manufacture component parts to their exacting specifications. You will likely see some recognizable parts on our website.
