100th Anniversary of the 1911!

~December 19th, 2010

Next year marks the 100th anniversary of John Moses Browning’s swell 1911 pistol. This platform has been hitting on all sixes for almost 100 years! With 2011 right around the corner, many manufacturers will be offering something to commemorate the occasion. One 1911 builder, Cylinder & Slide Inc. has such a gun in mind.

Bill Laughridge, president of Cylinder & Slide Inc., has been doing painstaking research to develop a replica as close to original as the 1911 was prior to serial number 3186. He will be offering a limited production of 100 pistols including specially made parts that are not readily available. Here is a PDF showing the differences between the parts of the 1911 and the currently available 1911A1s.

Instead of listing all of the details in this blog, we will share some of Cylinder & Slide’s Photoshop® mock-ups and a link to their website with all of the information, updates and the ability to purchase this very limited edition 1911. Act fast, as of today there are only 90 left available for purchase!
