The M1911 is a pistol developed by a comapny called "Colt" for almost any military group.
Design and DevelopmentEdit
The M1911, also known as the Colt .45, is an American single-action, .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun designed by John Moses Browning. It was adopted by the military after being tested, and was used for over 90 years until it was largely replaced by the M9, seeing continued use only by special operations and collectors. The M1911 has been used in almost every major conflict in the 20th and 21st century, and its reliability and firepower has made it one of the most common pistols in the world. Many modern handguns are based on the M1911's tilting barrel short recoil system.
