Celebrating 100 years of the Colt 1911A1 .45 ACP

Next year will mark the 100th anniversary of the Colt 1911A1 .45acp. A design of the legendary John Moses Browning, the greatest firearms designer of all time, the design of the 1911 is still very much in use today and is as popular as ever before.

Born in the Philippines, the 1911 pistol was conceived as a much needed substitute for then U.S. Army .38 caliber new army revolvers which miserably failed to stop muslim fanatics in combat in Mindanao. There are several historical accounts of a number of U.S. Army officers who got chopped to pieces by the wiry muslim "huramentados" who after having been shot numerous times in vital places, continued on to kill.
