Inspired by the classic lines of Browning’s 1903 Hammerless pistol, the Anomaly is our vision of what the offspring of the 1903 and the 1911 might have been. But don’t let the traditional styling fool you.  There’s plenty of 21st century performance laying beneath its vintage exterior, and the Anomaly earns its name by offering up the best of both worlds; The beauty of a classic with fuel-injected performance under the hood. The “Resto-Mod” of our line, its “hammerless” design and lack of an obtrusive beavertail grip safety makes it extremely comfortable and snag free for concealed carry use, and is equally at home on your hip or at the range.

The frame and slide for the anomaly are fully designed by ACW Founder and Master Gunsmith R. Schauland.  The frame features the highest grip rise in the industry allowing the shooter a higher grip and unparalleled comfort ergonomics. Built for you with experienced hands, every pistol a Masterpiece of traditional gunsmithing. Yet the “alchemy” is in Alchemy as our pistols are built to perform! A reliable precision pistol is what you should expect.
