Happy Birthday 1911

Kimber Gold Match .45 ACP and Kimber Stainless II in 9x19mm

Today marks the 101st anniversary of the M1911 pistol. On March 29th, 1911, after an extensive trial period that included six other designs, the U.S. Army formally adopted the Colt automatic pistol and designated it M1911. For most of the last hundred years it has been the top choice of competitive shooters and warriors the world over. The iconic "1911" is arguably the finest fighting pistol the world has ever known. Happy birthday 1911!
