M1911 .45 Caliber
Automatic Non-Firing Replica Gun - Nice Prop Gun
WWI or WW2
Re-enactment? Here is the Military Side Arm You Need
No gun collection is complete
without an M1911. Why a replica? Cheaper and safer. This is a must for the
collector or soldier costume.
This non firing model is a replica of the standard government issue sidearm
of the U.S. soldier since 1911 and made famous in historical pictures of WWII.
The M1911 had tremendous stopping power that saved countless soldiers lives for
A non-firing copy of the .45 original. This piece replicates the original in
size, weight and appearance, and the parts function much like the original, even
including an operating cartridge clip. However, parts cannot be interchanged or
the replica made to fire ammunition.
The M1911 is a single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, and
recoil-operated handgun chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge John M. Browning
designed the firearm which was the standard-issue side arm for the United States
armed forces from 1911 to 1985. The M1911 is still carried by some U.S. forces.
It was widely used in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam
War. Its formal designation as of 1940 was Automatic Pistol, Caliber .45, M1911
for the original Model of 1911 or Automatic Pistol, Caliber .45, M1911A1 for the
M1911A1, adopted in 1924. The designation changed to Pistol, Caliber .45,
Automatic, M1911A1 in the Vietnam era. In total, the United States procured
around 2.7 million M1911 and M1911A1 pistols in military contracts during its
service life. The M1911 was replaced by the M9 pistol as the standard U.S.
sidearm in the early 1990s.
The M1911 is the best-known of John Browning's designs to use the short recoil
principle in its basic design. Besides the pistol being widely copied itself,
this operating system rose to become the preeminent type of the 20th century and
of nearly all modern centerfire pistols. It is popular with civilian shooters in
competitive events such as USPSA, IDPA, International Practical Shooting
Confederation, and Bullseye shooting. Compact variants are popular civilian
concealed carry weapons, because of the design's inherent slim width and the
power of the .45 ACP cartridge.
The M1911 pistol originated in the late 1890s,
the result of a search for a suitable self-loading (or semi-automatic) handgun
to replace the variety of revolvers then in service. The United States of
America was adopting new firearms at a phenomenal rate; several new handguns and
two all-new service rifles as well as a series of revolvers by Colt and Smith &
Wesson for the Army and Navy were adopted just in that decade. The next decade
would see a similar pace, including the adoption of several more revolvers and
an intensive search for a self-loading pistol that would culminate in official
adoption of the M1911 after the turn of the decade.
