The modern Browning arms company hangs its hat on the U.S. hunting market–no doubt. But in recent years it has made more of a commitment to its namesake, even capitalizing on its relationship with FN America, bringing 1911-based pistols to the market. First the 1911-22 captivated 1911 fans with a modern rimfire take on John Browning’s classic gun. Then the 1911-380 launched, bringing a capable carry gun to the market. Now Browning adds to the line with the Black Label Pro American Flag pistol.
Browning Black Label Pro American Flag 1911-380 Details
The beauty of the 1911-380 comes in its design. Masterfully scaled at 85-percent of the iconic War Horse, the 1911-380 comes ready for plinking or carry. It features a corrosion-resistant stainless steel slide and matte black composite frame. The frame comes with a machined 7075 aluminum subframe and slide rails. Inside, a rust-resistant barrel measures 3 5/8 inches (compact) or 4 1/4 inches (full size). A Picatinny rail option comes on both models, for attaching lights and/or lasers.
The new model sports an impressive set of grips. The rosewood-colored grips come emblazoned with a distressed U.S. flag design. This pistol should look good in the holster. Better still, it provides a secure gripping surface for presenting the pistol. The 1911-380 ships with two, eight-round steel magazines and an ABS carry case.
The pistol retails from $829.99 to 939.99. For even more info, please visit browning.com.
