It's the year of the 1911 and everyone at NRA is celebrating 100 years of the beloved pistol. From the commemorative Model 1911 Colt being auctioned by the NRA Foundation to the historical significance recounted by our National Firearms Museum staff, many different NRA programs are relishing the chance to highlight a century of the 1911. The Museum Store at NRA Headquarters in Fairfax is no different, as our Store Manager Benjamin Van Scoyoc tells us about special 1911 products available for purchase:
The 100 Year Anniversary of the Model 1911 is being celebrated at the National Firearms Museum, and the Museum Store has many items dedicated to America’s favorite handgun.
If you haven’t already, here’s your chance to pick up a copy of Patrick Sweeney’s beautiful book, 1911: The First 100 Years. This fine photographic history includes 400 color photos and illustrations, and is a must-have for the 1911 enthusiast. It sells for $29.99.
Other items include a 15 oz. cup featuring a 1911 with the Second Amendment, a bargain at only $10.95. Two custom shot glasses feature the 1911 at $7.95 each, and for only $3.95, you can pick up either a key ring or a powerful magnet.
Ladies, we've even got 1911 earrings for you for just $7.95, or a lapel pin for the gentlemen that retails for only $5.95.
