The Open models are just right for the ambitious shooter who wants to compete in IPSC, Speed in the open class with first-class and durable weapons. Here, too, we use only forged grips and forged and hardened slides, which are manufactured according to our CAD drawings. All 2011 versions are compatible with STI magazines. The Open pistols are also hand-fitted from oversized parts, so we can generally guarantee the precision of 2" at 50m for each Limited. With our hard slides of 40 HRc we achieve extreme longevity with first class precision even for IPSC Open Major guns. The ramp barrel is also a matter of course here. We have been shooting IPSC ourselves for decades and our compensators are tested for extremely flat shooting with specially graduated chambers. By reducing the weight in areas that do not affect the fit and durability, the flat shooting behavior is also positively influenced. Special compensators and tuning at no extra charge help our Open pistols fire flat functionally even with factory ammunition.
Like all HPS pistols, the Open models are PVD coated (nitrided) at no extra charge.
