The M1911 was a design by famed American gun-smith John Browning and was based on his earlier Model 1900 design. By 1905, the system was refined to the point it could compete for government contracts. With so many like-minded automatic weapons companies vying for such lucrative government deals with the US military, it was decided that all interested parties should compete through trials to be had in 1907. The requirement of the government was for a modern, semi-automatic pistol capable of firing the lethal 230gr bullet - a bullet which had already been made for another Colt product.
By the end of the trials, only the Colt M1911 remained against a Savage sidearm with Colt eventually earning the US military deal. The Colt M1911 was chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge and this was fed from a stout 7-round detachable box magazine. The large, man- stopping rounds promoted an equally large pistol grip and filled up the firing hand rather completely. Muzzle velocity was listed at 380 ft/lb offering up the required man-stopping capability that went on to be a staple of the pistol's service record.
Additionally, the pistol proved to be wholly reliable and robust even in the heat-of-battle, qualities that would ensure its survival through the countless conflicts it would be featured in.
