The M1911 was recently selected as the official Utah State Firearm – John Browning was born in Utah – in honour of the pistol’s 100 years of service to the American military (and many US allies as well).In addition to that, its also the subject of the next book to come out in Osprey’s excellent “Weapon” series.  Pre-order it through the Osprey website here.
