FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:

The Colt M1911, also known as the “Government” or “Colt Government”, is a single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, recoil-operated pistol chambered in .45 ACP. It served as the standard-issue sidearm for the United States Armed Forces from 1911 to 1986.

An iconic firearm, the 1911 has been copied and produced by many different manufacturers around the world and is still in production today in countless variants and configurations.
It is widely popular with civilian shooters for self-defense and competitive sports shooting, particularly USPSA, IDPA and IPSC.

Colt originally sold the the M1911A1 on the civilian market as the “Colt Government Model”.
They later redesigned the barrel bushing in an attempt to improve accuracy, and the resulting, improved Colt Government Model was officially named the “Colt Mark IV Series 70”.
In 1983 the “Colt Mark IV Series 80” was released that introduced an internal firing pin safety and a new half-cock notch on the sear.
