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 been modified for sport shooting, with modifications including mag-well, extended beaver-tail and combat hammer, extended safety lever, extended trigger, fiber-optic front sight and combat-style rear sight, and VZ grips.
This gun is in very good used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
There is some light wear to the finish of the slide and frame, but the gun still feels very solid.
The VZ grips are still perfect and very nice to hold.
This firearm is suitable for home self defense, but is slightly large for every day carry (since it is a duty-sized pistol), unless for a large-framed person.
This firearm is suitable for use in the following sports:
- IDPA – CDP division
- IPSC – CLASSIC division
- PIN SHOOTING – Stock gun & Pin gun
- STEEL CHALLENGE
