Inland Manufacturing, LLC announced that they are offering a series of Military Commemorative Firearms, and they are beauties. Check out the info an photos below.


June 8, 2017, Dayton, Ohio – Inland Manufacturing, LLC is proud to introduce the US Army 1st Infantry Division 100th Anniversary Commemorative models of two iconic firearms, the Inland M1 Carbine and the 1911A1 pistol.

On, June 8, 1917, the US Army 1st Infantry Division was organized at Fort Jay on Governors Island in New York Harbor, under the command of Brigadier General William L. Sibert. The 1st Infantry Division is the oldest continuously serving unit in the regular Army of the United States. Since its return from Germany after WWII, the 1st Infantry Division has been based at Fort Riley, Kansas.

The 1st Infantry Division leadership wanted to recognize this historic anniversary with special commemorative firearms, and reached out to Inland Manufacturing for assistance in creating two models that would have historical significance for the centennial event.

The first model chosen was the 1944 version of the iconic M1 Carbine. The new Inland M1 carbines feature many of the same characteristics of the original Inland carbines and are manufactured in the USA! The 1944 version of the M1 carbine features a type 2 barrel band, adjustable rear sights, push button safety, round bolt, and “low wood” walnut stock. The stock is hand rubbed with oil, and is embellished with engraving of the 1st Infantry Division’s shoulder patch, accomplishments, and of course recognition of the 100th year anniversary. This 100th anniversary model carbine retails for $ 1179.00* and is shipped with a ten-round magazine which also makes it legal in states with large capacity magazine restrictions.

The second model chosen was the Inland 1911A1 Government Model pistol, chambered in .45 ACP. The 1911A1 is patterned after the original 1911 that was designed over 100 years ago, modified in 1924 and then designated the Model 1911A1. The 1911A1 found service with members of the 1st Infantry Division longer than any other firearm in the division’s history, and was a natural choice for a commemorative model.

The Inland 1911A1 Government Model maintains historic military style with added modern safety features. The original “G.I.” configuration includes vertical slide serrations, fixed combat sights, GI style grip panels and a lanyard loop.

The 1st Division Infantry Anniversary model features engraving on the slide (right side) of the 1st Infantry Division’s shoulder patch, accomplishments, and recognition of the 1917-2017 100th year anniversary. The 1st Division Infantry Anniversary Model 1911A1 retails for $ 829.00*

postheadericon Microsoft extends openness and interoperability in industrial manufacturing

HANNOVER, Germany — April 25, 2016 — Monday at Hannover Messe 2016, Microsoft Corp. announced it is working with the OPC Foundation to enable virtually any industrial Internet of Things (IoT) scenario through interoperability between the millions of applications and industrial equipment compliant with the OPC UA standard. Microsoft will further enable its industrial IoT customers to connect a broad range of manufacturing equipment and software that can span decades of investment with extended support of the OPC UA open source software stack.

Interoperability between devices and assets is critical for today’s factories, which are increasingly bringing new and legacy systems online and modernizing their plants and facilities. OPC UA provides a standardized communi­cation, security, and metadata and semantics abstraction for the majority of industrial equipment. It also serves as a gateway to cloud-enabled industrial equipment, including data and device management, insights, and machine learning capabilities for equipment that was not de­signed with these capabilities built in.

Microsoft’s extended support for the OPC UA open source software stack spans its IoT offerings, from local connectivity with Windows devices to cloud connectivity via the Microsoft Azure platform. Integration with Azure IoT allows customers to easily send OPC UA telemetry data to the Azure cloud, as well as to command and control their OPC UA devices remotely from the Azure cloud. In addition, Windows 10 devices running the Universal Windows Platform can connect and openly communicate with other IoT devices via OPC UA.

“As Industry 4.0 reaches a tipping point, we believe that openness and interoperability between hardware, software and services will help manufacturers transform how they operate and create solutions that benefit employees’ productivity,” said Sam George, director, Azure Internet of Things at Microsoft. “Microsoft’s support of OPC UA in Azure IoT and Windows IoT will reduce barriers to industrial IoT adoption and help deliver immediate value.”

“OPC UA is widely recognized as a key communication technology for the Industry 4.0 initiative,” said Thomas J. Burke, OPC Foundation president and executive director. “Microsoft’s support for standards that foster IoT innovation, and specifically for OPC and OPC UA, results in easy, direct and more secure communications from programmable logic controllers on the shop floor to the top-floor world of IT.”

“OPC UA is the single, neutral, widely accepted standard to embrace the complex world of automation devices to easily and securely connect them everywhere,” said Stefan Hoppe, OPC Foundation vice president. “With the adoption by Microsoft to its Windows 10 operating system and Azure cloud, the OPC UA standard passes the critical milestone of general acceptance by the broader IT world.”

More information on Microsoft’s work with the OPC Foundation, and its support of OPC UA, is available at the Microsoft Booth at Hannover Messe in Hall 7, Booth C40.

Microsoft (Nasdaq “MSFT” @microsoft) is the leading platform and productivity company for the mobile-first, cloud-first world, and its mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.
