Custom Match Set 1911 Pistol & M1A Rifle - Both Serial #1
Up for auction we have a very special pair of firearms offered by Springfield Armory for the benefit of the National Rifle Association: a matched set of Serial #1s, both an M1A and 1911.
From the February 2008 Issue of American Rifleman:
Springfield Armory has pledged $1 million to NRA’s new Competitive
Shooting & National Championships Endowment to ensure the future
of competitive shooting. The Illinois firm plans to raise some of the funds by
donating a significant portion of the proceeds from the sale of 500 engraved,
limited-edition versions of two stalwarts on the line at the National Matches
that commemorate the 100th anniversary of the NRA National Matches at
Camp Perry. The guns are an M1911A1 and an M1A. Springfield’s highly
polished stainless steel .45 ACP M1911A1 has dovetailed adjustable sights
with a click-adjustable rear and an undercut front dovetail. The gun comes
in a case, has a speed trigger and custom cocobolo stocks with the NRA
logo. The slide’s left reads “100th Anniversary Camp Perry National Matches
1907-2007,” and the dustcover bears the gun’s number. The cased M1A,
chambered in .308 Win., is a Loaded Model with an American walnut stock
that has laser-cut engraving on the right side with the NRA logo and “100th
Anniversary Camp Perry National Matches 1907-2007.”
