1911: The First 100 Years, 2nd Edition by Patrick Sweeney

The year was 1911. The history of firearms would change forever with the adoption of what would become the greatest pistol ever designed, the Automatic Pistol, Caliber .45, M1911 - known today simply as the 1911. Now, in this expanded 2nd Edition, authority Patrick Sweeney celebrates the century-plus legacy of the greatest fighting handgun ever conceived, John M. Browning's legendary 1911 .45.

This new, enlarged edition now includes more history and more models of vintage and custom 1911 pistols, plus additional chapters on 1911 suppressors and the iconic handgun's role on the silver screen. Whether you're a collector or shooter, or simply interested in the evolution of this truly American classic pistol, 1911: The First 100 Years, 2nd Edition is a must-have reference!
