About the Manufacturer:
This Italian company was founded just after World War II. The production started with only gun parts, receivers and hammers, but in 1953 the first short-barrel gun, a .25 cal (6.35 mm) pistol went into production. After 8 years the firm 'Fabrica d ármi Tanfoglio Giuseppe' was founded. Today Tanfoglio manufactures a wide variety of high quality semi-auto pistols. While mostly distributed in Europe, there have been several private label imports of their products into the US.
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.
