A Centennial Celebration of 1911s

Other than the M1911, no service arm has survived 100 years of U.S. military service.

M 1911 Series 70

We are now in the centennial year of the magnificent Government Model Colt 1911, arguably the greatest handgun of all time.

The Remington R1 M1911

The R1 is Remington’s first semi-automatic pistol since the 1920s.

NRA & BSA: 100 Years of Partnership

NRA and BSA have enjoyed a tremendous relationship since 1910, with millions of boys and leaders having been members of both venerable institutions.

100 Years of Reminiscing

Remington's recent decision to offer the public a 1911 style .45 pistol is well timed. Back in March, we passed the 99th anniversary of the official adoption of the M1911 pistol as the sidearm of the U.S. Army. Next year, we'll see the centennial of that great old classic. For a host of reasons, the 1911 is an enduring firearm. I have yet to handle a sample of the Remington version, but it looks good and the early reviews of the gun by other writers are favorable.
