To say that Larry Vickers knows 1911s is an understatement. He knows their history, their mechanics, their operation, their application, the people who make them, and the people who collect them. There may not be anyone living who can speak with more authority on the 1911 and that is what makes his newest book, Vickers Guide: 1911, so exciting.
This is a proper coffee table book. It is chocked full of a amazing photography, technical data, and historical context for some truly rare 1911s. All of this is wrapped up in a package that conveys the permanence, status, and weight of the 1911 itself.
If you are even the least bit interesting in 1911s, you need to check out this book at VickersGuide.com.
