COLT M1911

This is Colt .45 M1911A1 except it doesn't look like one (all the proportions are drawn wrongly).
It was a standard-issue side arm in the US force for a long time, from 1911 (hence M1911=Model of 1911) until it was replaced by Beretta 92 in 1985. It was used in WW1, WW2, Korean and Vietnam wars.
Cartridge: 45 ACP. Action: Short Recoil Operation. Range: 75yrd (62m). 7 rounds max. Weight:1130g. Designed by John Browning.
Cool, innit?


  1. Really? It's a bit too heavy and can only have 7 bullets at a time, I think. Not a very effective gun!(Not that I know much about guns)Nice design though.

  2. Don't worry ,Saya.You draw wonderfully.If only I could draw half as good as you draw..

  3. I think it was very well done actually. The only proportion i see is the handle seems a tad bit too short. But honestly, it took me a few minutes to realize that. And the fact that this was made on paint? amazing :D

    The Berreta 92FS Has a nice 15 (or sometimes 12?) round magazine, but then again the colt has a .45 round instead of a slightly weaker 9mm round.

    But anyway, I thought this was an intresting little thing. I sure would like a gun. Kinda random but I think theyre sooo cool looking! The most I can use is paintball guns or rifles with bullets about as big as a finger nail.

  4. Wow all those years of AFJROTC (Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps) and I never knew that >< and I was on Color Gard =.= I had to handle the model weapons... witch landed at my boob cuz I'm that short ><
