C&S Trident .45 ACP Handgun Sneak Peek

Of all the 1911s at the 2010 SHOT Show in Vegas, why did the Trident pistol by Cylinder & Slide deliver the biggest bang?

Gloves are an essential piece of equipment in both cold and hot environments. The Trident’s operating controls are specifically designed to function while wearing gloves such as the EOTAC Vicker’s Combat Gloves.

The Trident is collaboration between Cylinder & Slide founder Bill Laughridge and a Naval Special Warfare veteran who must remain unnamed. It’s based on a Springfield GI model that has been extensively reworked to meet a specific set of criteria developed by Bill and “Bob.” Features include a redesigned beavertail grip safety, Cylinder & Slide fire control parts and a radically new finish that requires no lubrication, even in the harshest environment! Want to know more? Read the full review in the upcoming August 2010 issue of Combat Handguns.

Designed for the special operations community, the Trident is an ideal platform for a suppressor (shown here with the Silencerco Osprey suppressor) For more about the Osprey, see the author’s article in the June 2010 issue of Combat Handguns.

The Trident is a collaboration between Cylinder & Slide’s Bill Laughridge and a career Naval Special Warfare operator.  It is designed to be reliable in the harshest conditions.
