The Elite Force 1911 A1 is our version of the very popular real 1911 style of pistol. The 1911 plays an important part in firearm history; originally designed by John Browning, and produced by Colt, the Colt Model 1911 was initially produced in the early 1900s to meet requirements of the US Army for a self-loading pistol with high stopping power to upgrade the .38 revolvers being used at the time. Since its acceptance in 1911 the pistol has gone on to be admitted into many of the world’s military and law enforcement organizations. It had been the standard issue pistol of the US Armed Forces for decades, having been used through WW1, WW2, the Korean and Vietnam Wars, until finally being replaced by the M9 in the early 90s. The 1911 design has served as inspiration for nearly every other major handgun that has been developed since.
