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 reworked military pistol features a replacement barrel and bushing among other internal parts and is missing its front blade. The pistol's frame and slide match and it features 2-position and grip safeties and a 7-round magazine. Its wood and bore are in good condition and its metal is in fair condition.
