New For 2023: Vudoo Gun Works Priest

Pinterest WhatsApp

Utah-based Vudoo Gun Works built its reputation with precision rimfire rifles. Last year, the company introduced its first handgun, an M1911 design it called the “Möbius” that was built using ultra-precision aerospace industry techniques. For 2023, the company is introducing a new flagship handgun with the Priest.

While the Möbius was designed using a traditional one-piece frame, single-stack magazine M1911 design, the Priest uses a hybrid 2011-style frame that uses an aluminum grip and trigger guard mated to a 4140-steel frame, which has an accessory rail on its dust cover. The frame is fitted with a Red Dirt USA adjustable trigger, a bilateral safety and a flared tactical magwell. The Priest is compatible with Staccato-type magazines and comes supplied with two 17-rounders. The slide is made of 17-4 stainless steel. Metal components can be finished with a nitride or Cerakote finish. All models are full-size with a 5” barrel.

Many features of the Priest are customizable to the end user’s taste. Triggers can be either flat- or curved-faced, with multiple length options. The Priest is available with a contour-matching optic cut for either RMR or Shield RMSc footprints, with more options planned for the future. Optic-cut slides usually do not have iron sights, but a backup co-witness iron-sight system is available. An iron-sight-only version with Bomar sights will also be available in the future. A variety of finish color options are offered. The Priest is currently made in 9 mm Luger with a bushingless bull barrel, but a traditional bushing barrel is available as an option. More chambering options are planned for later this year.
