Colt RK TALO Edtion
The RK stands for Rudolf Kornbrath, a legendary firearms engraver from the 1930’s. TALO Distributors Inc. had a special run of 300 Colt 1911 pistols made and each was engraved by master engraver Ben Lane, who has modeled his work after Rudolf Kornbrath. Not sure what the going price is on these since they don’t show up for sale too often.
Limited Edition Walther P99
A special run of pistols during the 100th anniversary for the factory. I believe these were only for the German market. Heavy engraving on the metal slide with 24K gold inlay. The P99 is chambered in 9mm with a 15+1 capacity. This one is definitely more of a collector’s piece than anything else.
I am pleased to announce the opening of “Gun Wisdom”, a collection of Tumblr’s experts on firearms and shooting activities, of which I am one of the humble contributor. We welcome any and all questions, anon or not, so come one, come all, and at the very least, start following!
