About the Manufacturer:
Established as a trading company in 1905 and known as Squires Bingham Co. at the time, the company found a market in importing and retailing motorcycles and sporting goods - including firearms and ammunition. In 1952 the President of the Philippines granted the company permission to manufacture its own line firearms and ammunition locally, as it was in line with his government's thrust towards industrialization. Known as Armscor today, the company touts that it is the largest arms and ammunition manufacturer in SouthEast Asia.
About the Cartridge:
This cartridge was developed by John Browning and was adopted by the United States Ordnance Department along with the Colt-Browning automatic pistol in 1911. It has also been made the official military handgun chambering by several other governments, notably Argentina, Mexico and Norway. The 45 Automatic is the most powerful military handgun cartridge in use today. This is a heavy and powerful sub-sonic round. Although its muzzle energy can exceed 400 ft-lbs, its velocity and bullet weight creates a steep trajectory curve that limits its effective range to self-defense distances.
