Here’s a riddle : What is a fire-breathing beast with a steel hide? A dominant, centuries-old legend, surrounded by gleaming gold metal, with the smell of sulfur in the air?
Yes. It is both a Dragon and a 1911. The legends have now been united in a masterful creation from Altamont Co. The enraged Dragon emerges from its stainless steel [captivity] in stunning and dramatic detail. Carved with unprecedented depth, the fire-breathing [head] is sculpted on the left side and its leathery wings wrap all the way around the top of the slide to the opposing side, its wings and tail crashing through the rear serrations. Scorched earth engraving scarred by dragon claws covers the frame. Custom dragon wing grips complete this special edition.
The combination of myth and history is a legend. This is the Kimber 1911 Dragon Legend Edition, designed and engraved by Merlin Enright. This piece speaks for itself, and is designed to be enjoyed as functional art worth treasuring for the future generations. Fully functional and scratch resistant, this is truly the shooting experience you have always needed.
Let the Dragon roar.
