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.
One of the manufacturers who have produced a version of the 1911A1 is Norinco of China.
These firearms are manufactured with very hard steel and are known to be extremely durable.
This particular firearm has the finish and features of an old, World War 2 era Colt 1911A1.
