VUDOO GUN WORKS
Vudoo Gun Works is a relatively small, family-owned operation founded and led by some of the best in the business. The founders have spent many years in the shooting, hunting, and outdoor trade, so there isn’t much they haven’t seen or encountered. They put that experience to work for you while consistently creating the highest quality firearms on the planet… simple as that.
Some companies have a vision or mission statement. At Vudoo, they have a mantra that embodies who they are and what drives everything they do. This mantra defines them as the soul of who they are and ensures you can expect nothing but the best. The best products, the best customer service, the best attitudes, and the best partnerships in the business.
“We envision and create exceptional, employees with passion, products that exceed customer expectations, and relationships based on respect and consideration.” ~ Vudoo Gun Works
The Vudoo Priest is the next logical step in the precision pistol line-up after the fall 2022 launch of the Möbius single stack 1911. The Priest successfully integrates the highly precise and reliable slide and barrel fit of the Mobius with the familiar functionality of a modern double-stack 2011-style frame.
The frame is manufactured from 4140 steel finished in a colored Cerakote selected by the customer, and the grips are aluminum with a Vudoo Gun Works hybrid texture for a solid no-slip hold.
Other features include a user-selectable trigger length and contour, ambidextrous safety for the lefties, an accessory rail dust cover, and a flared magwell for faster reloads.
The Priest is compatible with the STI/SV family of magazines giving users the option of 17, 19, or 23-round capacity, and will ship with two 17-round magazines.
THE SLIDE & BARREL
Depending on the customer, the slide is a 17-2 stainless steel that can be finished in Cerakote or left plain.
Customer sight options include the standard contour matching optic cut for either RMR, Delta Point Pro, or BoMar-style iron sights.
The Priest comes standard with a bull barrel with a bushing barrel option.
Type: Double Stack
Caliber: 9mm Parabellum
Magazine Capacity: 17/19/23 Rounds
Sights: Optic cut for RMR, Delta Point Pro, or BoMar-style iron sights.
Barrel Length: 5 Inches
Vudoo Gun Works integrated the strong points of the single-stack Mobius into the double-stack Priest.
