History of Colt 1911 Firearms
The Colt 1911 (aka the M1911 or the Colt 45) is perhaps the world’s most popular handgun. It was initially created for the US Army, who specifically wanted a new semi-automatic handgun to replace their existing service revolvers.
Named for the year it was developed, Colt 1911 semi-automatic pistols were the brainchild of John M Browning, one of the industry’s most revered firearms designers. Colt 1911 handguns are simple, reliable and highly serviceable, which probably contributed to their popularity and longevity.
In 1926 a newer improved model, the M1911 A1 pistol entered the market and enjoyed unprecedented success for nearly six decades. Colt 1911 handguns have been utilized by the military, law enforcement agencies, personal security personnel and by civilians for personal protection and sport shooting.
Colt eventually sold rights to manufacture Colt 1911 firearms to other firearms manufacturers including Remington and Springfield Armory and as a result, millions of clones have been produced in the past century.
