More Pictures Of The Browning Hammerless And 1910

Union Station

During our visit, we took hundreds of photos of the guns. Since we only had a limited amount of room in the print edition, I thought it would be good to share many more of the photos. These are the rough pictures, un-edited or photo-shopped, but they will still give you insight into these unique guns. We haven’t captioned them since there are just so darn many, but by comparing images here with those in the magazine you should be able to sort out what-is-what! Enjoy!

Browning 1

The entrance to the Browning Museum in the Union Station building
is unassuming — but treasures lie inside!

Browning 2

Grinning like the Cheshire Cat, Bill Laughridge holds up
the two reasons we were there — the “Hammerless”
(left) and “1910” models.

Browning 3

Had to share this with you since I wanted honest to
gosh documentation that yes, I had my paws on these
two rare guns! It was a wonderful feeling to know that,
almost beyond any shadow of a doubt, John M. Browning
had his hands on these very prototype pistols as he nursed
them into being. It was like shaking hands with the old gent himself.

Browning 4

The museum has a stunning collection of full-auto Browning designs too.

Browning 5

A sort of family photo here. The “Hammerless” followed by
the “1910” and the final result: the iconic 1911. Here, a very
early 1911 is shown, also from the museum.
