MKS Supply and Inland Manufacturing Awards
Firearm to Top Shooter at National Championships
MKS Supply, LLC, Dayton OH, August 2015– Inland Manufacturing and MKS Supply, LLC, the exclusive marketer for Inland firearms is extremely proud to announce its awarding firearms to two shooters (one, the National Champion) at the National Championships held in July at Camp Perry, Ohio.
Inland Manufacturing’s President, Ron Norton presented Army Staff Sargent Lawrence Cleveland of the U.S. Army marksmanship Unit (AMU) with a replica World War II 1911A1 pistol ($749.00 MSRP) for firing a blistering score of 294-7X out of 300 possible points and winning the prestigious 2015 National Trophy Individual (NTI) Pistol Match. The NTI Pistol Match began in 1904, the second year of the National Matches, and is considered to be the most prestigious pistol event at the Camp Perry National Championships.
Inland Manufacturing also conducted a drawing for all the competitors entered in the .30 caliber M1 CMP (Civilian Marksmanship Program) Carbine Match at Camp Perry.
Raymond Vaughn of Gwynn Oak, MD won the drawing and received a Model 1945 M1 Inland Manufacturing .30 caliber carbine ($1049.00 MSRP). Here is where karma really comes in play; Vaughn was competing at the Carbine Match with a genuine original WWII Inland manufactured .30 caliber carbine!
Charles Brown of MKS Supply says “the National Championships at Camp Perry are the recognized crown jewel of American firearm competitions. We are very honored to present these awards to the shooters at this great competition event.”

..from everything I’ve seen and heard, the new Delta Elite has the same handling and robustness as the early model. And if that is the case, I would have every expectation that it too will hold up to 20 plus years of solid use with intelligent care (and replacement of the recoil spring every thousand rounds or so).
We’re sure he’ll stir up some “discussion” with these two points:
1. 1911s are like Strippers and Glocks are like Fat Girls
2. Why he chooses 9mm over 45

A historic Colt .45-caliber, semi-automatic pistol stolen more than 30 years ago from a Medal of Honor winner in South Carolina has been returned to its rightful owner. The gun and owner were reunited after a history buff in Medford, who bought the old handgun in an online auction last month, tracked down the retired Marine whose name is engraved on it. “I knew if I found him and it was his gun, I couldn’t keep it,” said George Berry, 71, who knew little about the history of the gun when he purchased it from an auction house in Pennsylvania.
The story begins when Berry, a retired Navy warrant officer who also served in the Marine Corps, decided this summer to fulfill a lifelong dream of owning one of the historic handguns. “I’ve always wanted to own a Colt Model 1911 .45 automatic — always wanted one,” he says. “John Wayne had one in every World War II movie I’ve ever seen him in.”
The bill to make the Browning M1911 the official gun breezed through a committee hearing this week and is scheduled to be debated by the full House as early as Wednesday.
Republican Rep. Carl Wimmer said the state should have the gun as one of its state symbols to honor John Browning, a Utah native who invented it in 1911.
