"Colt 45" M1911
Designed by John M. Browning and sold to Colt this was the standard-issue side arm for the United States armed forces from 1911 to 1985, and is still being produced and used today more than 100 years later!
During testing 6,000 rounds were fired from a single pistol without misfire and when the gun began to grow hot, it was simply immersed in water to cool it. It is the basis for most modern semi-auto pistols.
This model shown is a Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) with ragged trigger grip and hammer, rubberised handles and a larger thumb guard to assist in combat conditions while wearing gloves.
