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.
Remington Rand was one manufacturer of the M1911A1, and produced more 1911 pistols than any other wartime manufacturer.
It is widely popular with civilian shooters for self-defense and competitive sports shooting, particularly USPSA, IDPA and IPSC.
This particular Remington Rand M1911A1 is a U.S. Military Issue pistol, produced in 1944 based on its serial number, which falls in the 2,044,XXX range.
