Caught this news on the interweb today. Maybe our Glock 1911 is not as far as we thought. (AP) Noted handgun manufacturer Kimber Manufacturing, Inc. of Yonkers, New York has signed an "agreement in principle" to sell it's manufacturing facilities and all rights to the design, manufacture and sale of its world renowned line of 1911 style handguns to Glock USA. Gaston Glock, speaking before 30 reporters at a press conference in Austria announced the consummation of a protracted series of negotiations and stated that the deal will "shake up the entire handgun manufacturing community." Mr. Glock was also quoted as saying "Kimber has produced an excellent line of weaponry for many years - we will now take their product to the next level through the Glock process of perfection." Financial analysts have been predicting consolidation in the firearms industry for some time, and are openly speculating that Gaston Glock may well have already set his sights on Springfield Armory, another highly regarded manufacturer of high quality handguns.
