SHOT Show 2018: SIG Sauer 'We The People' 1911

posted on February 2, 2018
SIG Sauer commemorates the greatness of our American heritage with its special series of "We The People" handguns, particularly this 1911 chambered in .45 ACP that includes a number of highlighted features.

A number of the stand-out elements on the SIG Sauer "We The People" pistol call out elements of Americana, including specially designed grips that include 50 stars to represent every state in the union. The gun also includes a unique tumbled finish, along with "1776," "We The People" and 13 stars engraved into the top of the slide to represent the original 13 colonies that fought for independence from Great Britain.

For all the details on this special 1911 pistol, check out the video above.

For me, one of the many bonuses of this gunwriter business has been the opportunity to meet and become friends with a number of the firearm enthusiasts of an earlier generation; legendary figures such as Frank Hamer Jr., Bill Jordan, Bill Toney, Col Walter Walsh and the subject of this column: COL Rex Applegate.
