Schmeisser 1911 – Hugo Schmeisser Birthday Edition

    Schmeisser GmbH (Ltd.) out of Krefeld, Germany, announced a Birthday Edition of the Schmeisser 1911.

    The Schmeisser 1911 Hugo is a classic single-stack 1911 pistol, with all normal features you can expect.

    The Schmeisser 1911 is available in either .45 ACP or 9×19 mm, and it can be ordered with adjustable or fixed sights.

    Apparently it was for Hugo Schmeisser’s 133:rd Birthday. You could argue that that is a rather weak reason to do a limited edition, but I have seen worse.

    Hugo Schmeisser birthday edition!
    Today Hugo Schmeisser would have turned 133 years.

    For this reason we make a limited edition of our 1911 Hugo.
