Why would Paladin Press reprint a 70-year-old Colt firearm catalog that doesn't contain a single AR-15 rifle, M4 carbine or stainless-steel pistol? Because A Century of Achievement is far more than just a catalog of products; it's a unique insight into Colt's celebration of its first 100 years as a firearms manufacturer. By perusing the guns in these pages and taking a guided tour through the 1930s manufacturing plant in Hartford, Connecticut, you will gain a new appreciation for the exceptional materials and craftsmanship that went into the firearms that built Colt's reputation. As an additional bonus, the catalog includes a personal shooting lesson from Col. Charles Askins, legendary Border Patrol officer, soldier and expert shot. Original copies of A Century of Achievement sell for hundreds of dollars today. Now, this quality reprint edition is available for collectors, historians, Colt aficionados and anyone who wants a glimpse into one company's influence on an entire nation.
