Honor Defense pistols have always met or exceeded USA industry standards for safety.
The standards include the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) / Sporting Arms Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, Inc. (SAAMI®), and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) test protocols.
We have also implemented extra safety features to help insure safe handling, these include:
- No Trigger-pull for dis-assembly
- No Tools for disassembly
- Stainless Steel Striker Block
- Stainless Steel Striker Housing (not plastic)
In addition to internal testing, additional tests were conducted by an outside professional testing laboratory. Abusive handling (drop tests and jar off tests) were successfully conducted and confirmed by National Technical Systems (NTS) Chesapeake Testing Laboratories.
NTS Chesapeake is recognized by the State of California, State of Massachusetts and the US Dept of Justice – National Institute of Justice for testing of firearms.
