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.

Colt re-issued 70 series

I have 2 of these. One is stainless and it has never been shot I have had this one for 15 years (2005). It was bought brand new. I,also, have the blued version. I have shot this one many times. It is very accurate and reliable. I have had this one for 16 years. Fit and finish are very good on both. I have had no problems on the blued version at all.
