But first, take a moment to read up on this historic gun:
The 1911 Colt 45 was developed in the 1890s to fill the need for reliable self-loading weapons that were in demand for the US Armed Forces at the time. The revolvers in use at the time became less reliable in damp and humid conditions like jungle warfare, and some soldiers began asking for higher-powered weapons that could stop enemies faster. When the US Army asked for submissions for a semi-automatic pistol designs several companies applied, but John Browning's 1911 Colt 45 won the competition when it proved it could fire up to 6000 rounds and be submerged in water (to cool it down) without affecting its performance.
The basic 1911 Colt 45 design (chambered for .45 ACP ammo) was so successful that it was used by US Armed Forces for decades before being replaced by more modern sidearms and handguns.
