Manufacturer’s Description

The Shooters Arms Mfg FX45 Fatboy Lightweight is a 1911-style semiauto pistol chambered in .45 ACP and built on an alloy frame. Features include a 1911-style slide and standard 1911-style controls. It carries an all-black, Novak-style rear sight, and a black post front sight with a white dot.

This pistol differs from standard 1911s in several significant ways, including:

  1. It’s built on a wide-body, high-capacity frame;
  2. The frame serves as the grip, eliminating the need for grip panels;
  3. It employs a cone barrel with no barrel bushing; and
  4. Its magazine holds 12 rounds.

Note: American Tactical Imports (ATI) imports these pistols from Shooters Arms Mfg into the United States.
