I like the part when he said that they would shoot it until it got hot and put it in a bucket of water and then start shooting it again...

That is a cool bit of history I knew that singer made a lot of m1 carbines but was totally unaware of them producing the 1911.

Cool story, I'd love to visit the John M. Browning Firearms museum sometime.

Really cool story and gun. I've read about these a couple of times, and always enjoy a new perspective.
