Tom Holland, president of Free State Firearms, LLC, today announced pre-sales ordering availability of the company’s 9mm 1911 user authenticated Sentry pistol. An additional 10% discounted retail price is being offered for law enforcement and corrections agencies at $1,795.00 (single item purchase, additional quantity discounts provided) while the regular (civilian) retail price is $1,995.00 per unit. Product deliveries are anticipated to begin sometime during 4th quarter 2021. The 9mm 1911 Sentry pistol is the company’s flagship user authenticated firearm for use in prisoner transfer / transport as well as civilian home defense applications.

The 9mm 1911 Sentry features Free State Firearms’s patent pending lock-out technology that is integrated with an RFID chip contained in a glove worn by the officer / owner. The officer must depress the grip safety on the firearm while wearing an RFID-enabled glove to permit firing. This helps to ensure that each 9mm 1911 Sentry firearm fires each and every time when it is supposed to AND ONLY when it is supposed to!
