Book Description Andrew Mowbray Publishers, 1998. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Included. 293 pages. Pictorial Hardcover published without a dust jacket. The tremendous 75-year success of Colt's Browning-designed Model of 1911, .45 caliber pistol was the result of fifteen years of steady design refinement. Colt's skill in manufacturing and marketing to the government and John M. Browning's inventive genius were complemented by a highly professional U.S. Army Ordnance Department. Together they formed a technological juggernaut which simply overran the competition in the quest for adoption of the Model of 1911 as the nation's Government Model Pistol. This book tells the story of the exciting development process in carefully researched detail. It is a story told with extensive illustrations of the prototype, military, contract, and commercial pistols which make up the family tree of the Government Model. Also presented here for the first time are complete shipping records of all martial and thousands of commercial big frame Colt autos through the last Transition Government Model of 1924. An excellent reference. Language: eng Language: eng Language: eng Language: eng. Seller Inventory # 5323
