ENGINEERING AN HEIRLOOM
A search for suitable stands to hold my modest collection of vintage M1911 and M1911A1 pistols kept coming up empty.
So I designed something to fit my needs:
- I was running out of room in my safe and wanted to take advantage of the vertical space... stand the pistols up.
- Handling the pistols in and out of the safe required a device to lock the pistols firmly to the pedestal.
- Some of the old magazines are very rare and should be kept with the pistol... hold the magazine safely in place.
- I wanted a well built product, something really nice, heirloom quality.
The solution is MAG/SLAB.
SAVE SPACE IN THE SAFE
FIRMLY ATTACH PISTOL TO PEDESTAL
HOLD THE MAGAZINE SECURELY
OUR PACKAGING: A NOD TO THE U.S.ARMY MODEL OF 1911A1
During and after WWII, USGI M1911A1 pistols were shipped in brown Kraft boxes with a stamped legend on the top. The pistol and two spare magazines were wrapped in brown, waxed Kraft paper.
