The venerable 1911 – you’d be hard-pressed to find a shooter who isn’t at least broadly familiar with this classic design. Through 75 years of military service and countless variations on John Moses Browning’s original model, some have hated it and many have loved it. As it has aged, the 1911 has come to spark some division among gun tribes between its impassioned adherents and modernists who believe it has outlived usefulness in this day and age.
Nevertheless, despite the detractors new takes on the 1911 continue to be released and sold – from affordable and mild to pricey and wild. Today we bring you a new exclusive Davidson’s .38 Super version in either blued or stainless finish, made in partnership with Colt and flavored by Baron Engraving. Davidson’s recent press release reads:

Although this particular 1911 doesn’t add fuel to the “.45ACP stoppin’ pow’r” fire, no doubt it will still provide plenty to argue about (TWO WORLD WARS, anyone?) in the comments below. Happy debating! See you at the range.
