- Why is Lionheart different?
At Lionheart Industries, we focus on the customer experience. We have put enormous thought into everything we do, including our product design. Products are never in their final form; instead, our company is continually and incrementally improving!
- How was the LH9 series designed?
The LH Series is based on the Korean military sidearm; the Daewoo K5. Soon after its development in the 1980’s, the K5 was imported into the US as the Daewoo DP-51. After many years of battle proven history, we saw the potential in this firearm. We then decided to update and improve the DP-51 and turn it into the ultimate combat handgun. With some help from industry experts, endless trips to our factory in Korea, and tens of thousands of test rounds, it was ready!
- What is special about the LH9 series?
The LH Series has an excellent track record. It has been used as the standard sidearm for the Korean Army for over 25 years! The design utilizes a unique “Double Action Plus+” trigger system which combines double and single action for a truly unique and smooth first shot. We use forged materials – no polymer frame here, yet nearly the same weight!
- What sight cuts are used on the LH9 and REGULUS series pistols?
The original LH9 series pistols has fixed sights. The later LH9N, LH9CN, and LH9N-MKII versions all use Novak Colt .380 (.330″ x 65°) sight cuts with a .200″ front sight height. The REGULUS features standard, 1911-style (.495″ x 65°) Novak sight cuts with a .180″ front sight height.
- What sight cuts are used on the VULCAN 9?
The VULCAN 9 uses the SIG P365 dovetail channel with the following sight measurements:
Front Sight: 0.164 tall, 0.151 post width
Rear Sight: 0.296 tall, 0.146 notch width
- What is the REGULUS?
Built from the highest-grade materials with cutting-edge technology and precision machining, the Regulus refines 30 years of battle-proven reliability into a high-performance, modular package completely made in the United States. Every aspect of the design was shaped by consumer feedback and reviewer insight – this led to many upgrades, including the modular platform, Tru-Axis™ barrels, refined trigger, redesigned sight sizes, and increased grip and color options.
Most REGULUS parts will work with all previous Daewoo DP-51 and Lionheart LH Series pistols with the exception of the 18-round magazines, extractors, and the updated REGULUS captured recoil assembly.
- What is the VULCAN 9?
THE VULCAN 9 is designed to continue the heirloom quality and combat ready heritage that Lionheart is known for. You will find the VULCAN 9 easy to control, simple to maintain, and unparalleled in performance. Aerospace-grade aluminum makes the frame rugged, yet keeps it extremely light weight. Chromoly steel slides and barrels will withstand abuse for tens of thousands of rounds in every type of adverse condition. PVD, Cerakote, or traditional anodizing and nitriding (depending on model) protect the entire pistol, ensuring smooth function and resisting damage from use or corrosion. Every VULCAN 9 slide is optic-ready, featuring a screw pattern that accommodates the Holosun 407k/507k, the Shield RMSc, Trijicon RMRcc, SIG RomeoZero Elite and other optics that use the Shield RMSc or Trijicon RMRcc footprints. The frame comes standard with a Picatinny accessory rail, which allows you to attach your favorite accessories.
- Where are Lionheart firearms manufactured?
Lionheart's VULCAN 9 is designed, manufactured, and assembled in our Winder, GA factory. Our REGULUS platform was designed, manufactured, and hand-fitted in the USA. Our LH9 Series pistols were manufactured in South Korea by the former Daewoo Firearms factory. Secondary quality control, some assembly, and service was done at our location in Renton, WA.
- Are the LH9 and REGULUS series available for purchase?
Our LH9 and REGULUS platforms are now retired so we can focus our attention on the VULCAN 9 platform. LH9 and REGULUS spare parts and service are still available and performed by armorers at our Winder, GA location.
- What is your warranty?
Lionheart offers a ten-year warranty covering defects in materials and workmanship on all our firearms.
