Only 45 Pistols Being Made
Utah was the 45th state admitted to the Union therefore we thought this number was quite fitting for the edition size. Each pistol will receive a number out of 45 that is engraved below the muzzle on the bottom of the slide. The small edition size also ensures that your firearm will remain collectible since no more will be made.
The Only Browning Still Made in Utah
The Browning Black Label 1911 pistol is the only model that Browning still manufactures in Utah. John Browning himself was born in Utah making it very fitting that a Browning firearm is used to represent Utah. Made in Utah, for Utah.
