About the Gun

A faithful reproduction of the WWI Model 1911 U.S. Military sidearm, this vintage limited run of only 4,000 units is an accurate design after the early 1918 'Black Army'. During the US involvement of WWI, the finishing process was sped up to account for war efforts, and the standard Carbonia Blue finish was then changed to an almost black finish.

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.
