Kimber celebrates John M. Browning's ingenuity with a limited-edition M1911 pistol.
By Angus McClellan, AR Associate Editor 3/4/2010
John M. Browning had it right: "Finally the idea came. A good idea starts a celebration in the mind, and every nerve in the body seems to crowd up to see the fireworks."
Those words describe what we all admire in the truly industrious minds of great American inventors: ingenuity. Few possess it, and fewer still have the will and the means to apply it. And if we are so fortunate, one of those few brilliant ideas becomes reality—and the M1911 undoubtedly fits that mold. With the 100th anniversary of the adoption of Browning's M1911 pistol at our doorstep, Kimber decided it was time to celebrate Browning's ingenuity with the release of the limited Centennial Edition M1911, an example of which will be auctioned off on Friday, May 14, at the Fourth annual NRA-ILA Dinner and Auction in Charlotte, N.C.
