As a youth, the author marveled at the mind that could conceive such a wondrous mechanism; how could John Browning have created it without X-ray vision? It comes apart without tools, it goes together without tools, it is the lightning you hold in your fist. It has endured for a century, and if Robert Heinlein’s vision is true, it will endure for centuries more. Slim, powerful, elegant of line, capable of great beauty and brutish minimalism in turn, a tabla rasa for an owner’s imagination, the jumping-off point for a horde of manufacturers. In all of history, two handguns stand out as innovative, enduring, and widely emulated, and both happen to be Colts: the Model 1873 “Peacemaker,” and the M1911 pistol. No handguns as practical have captured the imagination as have these two American classics.
Capable of great accuracy, the power and simplicity of the M1911 make it a most useful defensive tool. The M1911 Complete Owner’s Guide is designed to help the reader make the most of that tool.
The M1911 Complete Owner’s Guide gives you a look into the history and development of the M1911, as well as giving you everything you need to know to use and maintain your M1911.
