Hey mofo squad how well do you know your weapons?

A reboot of my previous articles, hope you enjoy.

A true work of art

"The legendary 1911, it is now over a hundred year old design, this old warhorse has and still serves as one of most popular sidearms on the planet. It has the distinction of a solid  and reliable weapon with one of hardest hitting rounds for its size.
It has served with honor in every conflict the United States has been in since it came into service in 1911, a true 20th century weapon.

(range qualification circa 1914)

The pistols basic design has been copied by every gun manufacturer in the free world at least twice (maybe?)
Every modern warfare video game includes it in some form.
Including every Battlefield game but BF2042.

Great back up gun... 

I had the distinct pleasure of having this fine weapon as my primary sidearm during my 6 years as a Military police officer. It never failed for me, it hit what I aimed at, every time.

A little history...

The history of the Colt Government / M1911 Pistol began in early 1900s, when famous designer John M. Browning began to develop semi-automatic pistols for Colt company. In the 1906-1907 U.S. Army announced trials to replace its service revolvers with new, semi-automatic pistol. Army required the new pistol to have the caliber of .45 inch, so Browning designed its own cartridge that fired 230 grains (14.9 gram) bullet, and then, designed a new pistol. In 1911, after extensive testings, the new pistol and its cartridge, designed by Browning and manufactured by Colt, were adopted for U.S. military service as M1911. Prior to and during World War One, more than one million of these guns were manufactured, mostly by Colt and Springfield Armoury, as well as by Remington-UMC, Burroughs, Savage and some other companies. The rights to manufacture Colt/Browning design were also sold to some foreign countries, such as Norway or Argentine.

Along with Colt, countless numbers of companies in the USA and other countries manufactured more or less exact copies of the M1911. Some millions of guns were manufactured in the USA during the WW2 by numerous companies under US Government contracts, and probably even more were manufactured for commercial sales. Most common M1911 clones are manufactured by: Springfield armoury, Les Baer, Kimber, Wilson, STI, Para Ordnance and many, many others. Also, many M1911-patterned pistols are still custom built for service duty, sport shooting and self defence.
