Etched in Steel, Commemorating Operations Enduring Freedom & Iraqi Freedom

    Commemorative Firearms are a class of their own in that they can sometimes be seen as the wall plaques of small arms. Simple ones have a small engraving or something etched in the metal or wood while much more ornate ones can be gold plated and even diamond stuffed. In this case, Miles takes a look at some very specific examples of .45 ACP Kimber Custom IIs that were a result of a commemorative program run by Kimber. They had personal inscriptions in which Marines could have anything inserted into the limited amount of character space available.
