Century Arms Delivers Centurion 11 in .45 ACP

Few modern firearms are as iconic as the Model 1911 — a semi-automatic handgun that could certainly be considered John Moses Browning’s masterpiece. It was developed for the U.S. military, and even as other handguns have replaced it as the standard sidearm, it still has won favor from those in uniform. Likewise, the 1911 has been a favorite in the civilian world.

At last month’s 2024 NRA Annual Meeting in Dallas, Texas, Century Arms announced the arrival of the Turkish-made Centurion 11, which pays homage to the history of the Model 1911 at an affordable price of $399.99 (MSRP).
