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 pistol is the slightly more compact, “Commander” style 1911A1 variant, and has been refinished with dark brown Cerakote.
This gun is in good to very good used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
The overall Cerakoted finish is still good, with only some extremely light wear on the front edges of the slide, dust cover and trigger guard.
There are also a few, tiny, light patches of surface rust in places which are really not significant and easily cleaned.
The original Norinco rubber grips are still good, but just missing one grip screw.
The action is still tight.
This firearm is suitable for home self-defense and is likely also fine for every-day concealed carry, but could possibly be slightly too large/heavy for a small-framed person.
This firearm is suitable for use in the following sports:
- IDPA – CDP division
- MPDS – Defensive Pistol (DP) division
- IPSC – CLASSIC division
- PIN SHOOTING – Stock gun & Pin gun
- STEEL CHALLENGE
