Designed by John Browning, the Model 1911 was the standard-issue side arm for the United States armed forces from 1911 to 1985 and is still carried by some U.S. forces today. The Model 1911's longevity is due to Browning's often-imitated design, which incorporates the short recoil principle. The M1911 is a single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, and recoil-operated handgun chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge. While many manufacturers have produced this firearm, Colt is the original and the most trusted. This single-action pistol consists of a Colt Series 70 barrel and slide with an RMT frame. This historical firearm has been reblued and restored and features U.S. Property markings and a proofmark behind the trigger. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in NRA very good condition.
