SHOT 2023: Type-A EG2011   By: Kat Ainsworth

It’s no surprise the 2011 platform has gained popularity considering the capacity restriction of the original 1911. Unlike the 1911, the 2011 features double-stack capacity which means a wider grip and modern features that lend to greater comfort while shooting. The latest gun to join the 2011 family is the Type-A EG2011, and it’s made with serious attention to detail. The EG2011 is an all-metal handgun designed for stellar durability and superior overall performance.
