Limited Edition of 500!
Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the M-1911 Pistol.
One of the most successful pistol designs in the history of
modern warfare, the rugged and reliable M1911 .45 caliber
pistol is rich in history and tradition. Issued as a standard
US Service pistol during World War I, World War II, the Korean
War, and Vietnam War, it's success made it a personal choice
for operators in the Gulf War, War in Afghanistan, and Iraq
War. This detailed reproduction has over 30 functional metal
parts and hardwood grips. Featuring realistic slide-action,
this model offers all the safety, quality, and realism of the
original. The clip can even be removed and the model
disassembled. No other non-firing model approaches the
detailed workmanship of this pistol.
This non firing model is a
replica of the standard government issue sidearm of the U.S.
soldier since 1911 and made famous in historical pictures of
WWII. The M1911 had tremendous stopping power that saved
countless soldiers lives for 8 decades.
A non-firing copy of the .45 original. This piece replicates
the original in size, weight and appearance, and the parts
function much like the original, even including an operating
cartridge clip. However, parts cannot be interchanged or the
replica made to fire ammunition.
The M1911 pistol originated in
the late 1890s, the result of a search for a suitable
self-loading (or semi-automatic) handgun to replace the
variety of revolvers then in service. The United States of
America was adopting new firearms at a phenomenal rate;
several new handguns and two all-new service rifles as well as
a series of revolvers by Colt and Smith & Wesson for the Army
and Navy were adopted just in that decade. The next decade
would see a similar pace, including the adoption of several
more revolvers and an intensive search for a self-loading
pistol that would culminate in official adoption of the M1911
after the turn of the decade.
