This project began in November of 2021 with the idea of doing our spin on the double stack 1911, our way. We wanted to make something unique, something different. This process started with the name. It had to embody the platform while paying homage to the original. We spent a while going back and forth on the title but kept coming back to, “11”. In our own fashion, we couldn’t just roll with the name “11”; we needed to add our spin on it. Enter L33T Speak (a programming/gaming language and nod to the owner’s extensive time in IT), flipping the vowels to numbers you get 3L3V3N. The name is unique, acknowledges the beauty of the original model, and hits the target (literally and figuratively).

  The sleek styling and integrated design features of our slide assembly come from tirelessly researching the offerings/designs of many industry-leading manufacturers and looking for something that hasn’t been done. This process began by looking at the two most prominent design traits for this platform (the heavy chamfer “Tri-Top” and the “Filleted”/conventional rounded top design) and immediately rejecting them in in favor of going in the exact opposite direction. The end user can be assured in the knowledge of our platform being not only structurally strong, but supremely reliable, accurate, and light recoiling as well. We then proceeded to look at the final (subsequently) and biggest issue the end user faces with the high capacity 1911. This problem is the necessity of a mounting plate system for today’s most popular optics. That is why we set about redesigning the slide as pretext to allow for direct mounting the owner's optic of choice. The cradle cut method allows not only a far stronger optics mounting solution, but also allows for a much lower sight axis to the bore. Bucking the industry “norm” we also decided to forego the use of traditional iron-sights in favor of an optics only platform. To shoot the 3L3V3N is to become a believer.
