"Author Leroy Thompson tells us the story of the Model 1911 from its inception to today's use. This includes all of the different variations and improvements made to the gun in the last 100 years. It is truly staggering the number of types made and the huge number of places and companies who made these pistols. It all makes for another superb book and if you are interested in weapons, then this book is very much a must have. Highly recommended. " -Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness
