Grinnell, Iowa – -(Ammoland.com)- For firearm enthusiasts, few things spark pride, passion and patriotism more than a 1911, be it finely polished or marked and marred by experience. To pay homage to John Moses Browning’s timeless pistol design, Brownells is committing an entire week to “America’s Handgun.”
Starting on Monday, March 28, 2016, Brownells’ dedicated 1911 catalog – No. 12 – will be available in the catalog section at Brownells.com.
The newest edition is an 82-page, all-things-1911 book featuring thousands of products from sights and optics, to ammunition, slides, frames, gunsmithing tools and much more. Virtually anything needed to build, customize, clean or repair a 1911 can easily be found with a quick scroll through the index.
Featured brands in this year’s catalog include: STI, Wilson Combat, Evolution Gun Works (EGW), Raven Concealment, Leupold and hundreds more.
In addition to the catalog, Brownells will kick off “1911 Week” with the Brownells/Wilson Combat 1911 Dream Gun® Sweepstakes. The sweepstakes will feature a Wilson Combat 1911 CQB Commander model, chambered in .45 ACP. This incredible firearm is valued at $3,600.
Customers may enter the sweepstakes, view the firearm, and see full contest rules at Brownells.com/WilsonCombat1911
“The 1911 is certainly one of America’s most treasured firearm platforms,” said Brownells’ President Matt Buckingham. “To coincide with the release of our newest 1911 catalog, we wanted to get customers excited by running a sweepstakes for a Brownells/Wilson Combat Dream Gun®. Wilson Combat has been a great partner over the years; I’m positive someone will be thrilled to win this great firearm.”
