The Most Important American Guns

From The Federalist:

Martin Meylin has been credited with being the first great American gunmaker and inventor of the Pennsylvania long rifle—which was to become known as the Kentucky long rifle (“Kentucky,” in those days, being anything in the wilderness west of Pennsylvania). Meylin’s small cobblestone workshop still stands off a two-lane road in Lancaster. Local schools are named after him. Plaques have been erected in his honor. State politicians have even written legislation commemorating his contribution to American life.

Colt 1911 In 10mm


..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).
