The Davidson's Colt 1911 Heritage pistols feature Baron Engraving's work.

The Colt 1911 remains a seminal firearm in American culture. Designed by John Moses Browning, and carried by U.S. troops in virtually every conflict since the Great War, few arms can match the pedigree. Maybe no other gun can. As such, Davidson’s offers a pair of Colt 1911 pistols as rare as the form is revered.

Davidson’s just announced a new partnership with Colt’s Manufacturing and Baron Engraving. The result brings to market a pair of Colt 1911 “Heritage” 5-inch Government Models.

Davidson’s Colt 1911 Pistols

Each pistol comes chambered in .38 Super. Additionally, Baron Engraving worked over each gun with custom scroll engraving. The exclusive offerings feature gold-plating on the hammer, grip screws, mag release and slide.

The Colt 1911s come in two different finishes, either blued or stainless steel. Each features fixed G.I.-style sights, double diamond wood grip panels and one, seven-round magazine.

The blued version retails for $1,799.99. Meanwhile, the stainless steel variant retails at $1,999.99. Davidson’s says the Colt Exclusives will remain long-term offerings, increasing availability to Colt collectors.

With exquisite engraving, and chambered in the classic .38 Super, the Davidson’s Heritage collection offers a rare opportunity to get a unique Colt 1911. For more information, visit
