About the Handgun:
A faithful reproduction of the famous USGI 'government model' that served the American army for over seventy years, this mil-spec .45 auto features forged steel construction and a chrome-lined barrel.
About the Manufacturer:
This mainland China corporation was established in 1980. Under the official English name Norinco, they manufacture vehicles, machinery, optical-electronic products, oil field equipment, chemicals, light industrial products, explosives and blast materials, as well as civil and military firearms and ammunition. In the area of handguns, Norinco is known for making respectable copies of popular models such as the 1911, CZ, SIG, High Power and Tokarev pistols. Since 1994 various politically motivated import bans have kept Norinco handguns from the US market.
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.
