In this site, you will find information related to the old workhorse pistol. Designed by John Moses Browning and initially produced by Colt, this pistol has served as the official military sidearm, in the armies of several nations. It has gone through several conflicts (WW1, WW2, Korea, Vietnam and others), but it also has served as the pistol of choice for thousands of civilians and Law Enforcement agents.

The Colt Model 1911 (and its derivative, the 1911 A1) is probably one of the most copied firearm designs of all times. Almost all contemporary pistols are based (more or less) to the principles of the John Moses Browning pistol. Today, this same pistol is produced by several manufacturers, actually there are several companies in the industry, whose sole product is the 1911 or parts for the 1911.
