A reproduction of the WWI Model 1911 U.S. Military sidearm, this vintage limited run is an accurate reproduction of the design after the early 1918 “Black Army”. In order to increase production for the US Military needs during WWI, the standard Carbonia Blue finish was changed to a finish that was almost black, hence the “Black Army”.
Throughout American History, Colt’s weapons have given American Servicemen the ability and confidence to succeed in combat. As the Colt Walker and Peacemaker revolvers contributed immeasurably to American success in past conflicts, Colt’s 1911 pistols and their descendants were in the hands of confident, WWI, WWII, Korean and Vietnam American Servicemen.
