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 gun is in excellent, used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
The overall finish is still excellent with no discernible marks or wear.
The original plastic grips are also still excellent.
There is professional (almost factory) checkering to the front of the trigger guard and rear of the slide, which I am not sure is an original feature of this pistol or not.
The hammer spur also seems to be slightly wider than others that I have seen, and the profile of the front sights is also marginally more straight.
The action is still extremely tight.
It comes with 2 x 7 round magazines.
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.
It may also have some collectors value to anyone with a ‘Military Issue Firearms’ collectors theme.
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
