April 09, 2016
Craig Boddington is at the Browning museum and checks out two of the most rare Model 1911 handguns of all time.
Boddington showcases a pair of 1911 models that John Browning created and offered to the U.S. Army for testing, with each gun going through thousands of rounds. One model had a hammer while another did not and neither gun had a safety.
The history behind these pistols is rich indeed and this historical look at two of the most rare Model 1911s in existence will give you a new appreciation for the lineage of this incredibly popular handgun.
