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 1906-1907 the U.S. Army announced trials to replace its service revolvers with a new, semi-automatic pistol. The Army required the new pistol to have the caliber of .45 inch, so Browning designed its own cartridge that fired a 230-grain (14.9 gram) bullet, and then, designed the new pistol around it. In 1911, the new pistol and its cartridge were adopted for U.S. military service as the M1911. The improved design was adopted by the US Military as the M1911A1 pistol, and served with distinction until the mid-1980s.
With the exception of the barrel, which is made from a self-lubricating polymer to extend the life of the internal components (metal barrels are available from KWA), the KWA M1911A1 features a high quality, full metal slide and frame and feature a beautiful matte gun metal grey / black finish. Similarly to its real counter part, the slide features rear cocking serrations and fixed iron sights. The frame is slick and smooth just like any classic 1911 model and features the famous brown, diamond textured grip panels. For fans of the old-school 1911 or players who want something that is not-so-tactical, but very reliable, the KWA 1911A1 is one of the top tier options for anyone.
