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 1966-manufactured handgun features the classic Model 1911 firing pin and safety design that many gunsmiths prefer. It includes rubber grips, open sights, and a 7-round magazine. There are some handling marks on the handgun Over all, grips, metal, and bore are in good condition.
