Our Story

We build world-class 1911 pistols made by Americans for the Republic. Our pistols are truly made in the USA, by hand, with American-made parts, one gun at a time, not by ten assembly line workers.

Republic Forge pistols are not built for beginners. They are built for shooters.

We get our hands dirty every day, making a custom pistol for you that gives you the thrill of a lifetime when you’re shooting it.

We put a lot of rounds through each gun to make sure everything functions properly. We include a target from this first test firing to show you the incredible accuracy of our 1911s.

This is our personal touch of confidence to prove that we stand behind every gun we make. Our pistols deliver a unique blend of cutting-edge technology and custom craftsmanship.
