Formally adopted by the U.S. Army in 1911 and continuing in service for over 100 years, the Government Model 1911 pistol has undergone remarkably few changes throughout its long history yet remains relevant today. Known by many simply as “America’s Pistol”, the 1911 has been trusted by soldiers on battlefields spanning two centuries, carried by law enforcement, refined in small custom shops across the U.S., and revered by firearms enthusiasts and collectors as a work of art.  

Larry Vickers – renown combat veteran, firearms instructor and small arms expert – takes you on a one of a kind tour of some of history’s finest examples of the 1911, as he shares pistols from his own personal collection as well as those of his friends and other firearms specialists. Along the way, he gives the reader a glimpse into the secretive world of U.S. Special Operations weapons development, highlights the details of some of history’s most valued production and custom guns, and opens the door to premiere 1911 builders and custom shops.  Included are rare and unique pistols made by Colt, Kimber, Pachmayr, Springfield Armory, STI, Wilson Combat, and a number of custom builders such as Jason Burton, Jim Garthwaite, John Harrison, Richard Heinie, Paul Liebenberg, Steve Nastoff, Wayne Novak, Armand Swenson and Larry Vickers. Additional insight is provided by firearms expert and instructor Ken Hackathorn, world champion shooter Rob Leatham and custom builder Jason Burton.

Vickers Guide: 1911 presents this highly curated collection of 1911 handguns in never before seen detail on larger than life, wide format, full color prints in a linen covered hardback. Vickers Guide: 1911 is the next best thing to having these exceptional collector’s grade handguns in your own personal collection, and is a must-have for any serious firearms enthusiast.
