From the front lines to the firing line, the 1911 pistol has served and protected! In The History and Legacy of the 1911 Pistol, Personal Defense World takes a look at the pistol that has been around for over 100 years.
“The history of the 1911 begins long before the adopted, dated name. In 1898, America went to war with Spain and quickly ended up in warfare in the Philippines.”
“The 1911 is a mechanical marvel. The design, based on John Browning’s 1889 patent, has been a fundamental blueprint or reference point for pretty much every centerfire autoloader produced in the 20th and 21st centuries. Very few mechanical designs have been copied, cloned or referenced as much as the 1911.”
