Traditionally, reconnaissance was a role that was adopted by the cavalry. Speed was key in these maneuvers to gain an advantage over an adversary. Military commanders favored specialized small units for speed and mobility and a key component was their specialized equipment adapted for dominance in any environment.
The Recon Series is an outstanding synergy of modern materials with a traditional 1911 feel that is well suited for many applications. All Recon Series pistol frames are machined from a forging of 7076 aircraft grade aluminum alloy which results in a 20 percent reduction in weight over a traditional steel frame. Roberts Defense has developed a proprietary hard cote anodize and Teflon finish to provide a light weight and extremely durable platform.
