In 1982, the US military had 418 000 automatic pistols Colt M 1911A1. The first version of this weapons was introduced in the 1911 year, in the 1921, the gun was improved, and in the 1926 year it was put into service in an improved version as the 1911 A1 model M. For seven decades, the gun was a regular weapon of the US armed forces, removed from service only in 1982 year.

For several years, various models of pistols, both local and foreign, were tested, but the military did not stop at any of them. The pistols presented at numerous competitions, although they met the requirements, were each time rejected by the departments of the American armed vultures. After a long and hard struggle, the Italian company Pietro Beretta SpA from Brescia became the winner.



The action of the automatic pistol Colt M 1911А1 is based on the use of recoil energy of the moving barrel. The weapon has an external trigger, a fixed aiming device, a rotary safety lever, which is activated only when the trigger is cocked, and an additional pressure safety device in the handle. The width of the weapon is 32 mm, the length of the aiming line is 406 mm, the resistance of the trigger is from 2,25 to 3 kg. Firing Rate - 14 shots / min. A significant drawback of weapons, according to experts, is a large mass.

Regular handguns of the American armed forces refers to the so-called classic automatic pistols. They were exported to many countries around the world.

Weapons have repeatedly improved, improved design and parameters. Unlike the first version, the Colt М1911А1 pistol has a narrower trigger, significantly protruding from the handle, a safety catch, a convex body of a return-combat spring. From 1970, the standard model was supplied with an improved barrel mount, from 1983, with a modified sear. But in principle, the design has remained unchanged since 1911.



After the Second World War, many US and foreign companies tried to produce all sorts of modifications. Experiments were carried out with different calibers, shorter barrel and carriage, with a shortened handle, with a handle made of light metal, and also tried to produce sports options. In the mid-sixties, the US military, who were stationed in central Europe, received a version for the 9x19 Parabellum cartridges with a 8 magazine for cartridges.

The following modifications made on the basis of the standard model deserve special attention. These include the X-version of the Colt Super Automatic caliber .1929, the 38-mm version of the Parabellum Lüger Colt Commander, as well as the Colt Commander that appeared in 9, .45 caliber and Colt Super Caliber Commander. 38. Versions Commander were made of steel, versions of the .45 caliber and 9 mm and modifications Lightway Commander - from light metal. Since the mid-seventies, all versions of Commander and Combat Commander pistols have been manufactured using improved technologies.

According to a special press, automatic Colt pistols The 1911А1, as well as their versions of the Commander, are manufactured in the USA, which makes it easy to replace the old regular handguns with new ones.

    An excellent barrel and an example of the design genius of John Moiseevich Browning. The working patterns of his 1911 Colt GP and Browning GP (better known as HP) became classics as well as the Mauser system for rifles. I think I will not be mistaken if I say that at least 90% of all pistols use one of the two Browning automation schemes.

        BAR is not advanced in the use of a gas vent circuit. Offhand you can recall the machine guns Hotchkiss, Lewis, Macklin, Mondragon, they developed their weapons much earlier than Ivan Moiseevich.

        Colt M1911 was adopted in 1911, the TT was adopted at 30, and in 33 an improved version of the TT was adopted.
        If you compare the design of Colt and TT - TT automation scheme is borrowed from Colt. But you can’t say unequivocally that Tokarev simply copied Colt. Firstly, adaptation of the Colt design to a 7.62 mm cartridge is already a significant job. In addition, Tokarev made the original trigger, one block that could be removed with this block

          The design of the Tula Tokarev was borrowed rather than from Colt, but from Browning arr. 1903, better known as Browning mod. No.2. And in some foreign catalogs the TT is listed as TT-Browning (as well as Colt-Browning and Mosin-Nagan (this is about the rifle))

            I do not agree with you - TT has only similarities with Browning FN M1903. Automation ФН М1903 is based on the use of a free shutter and a rigidly fixed barrel, while TT automation uses a scheme with a short stroke of the barrel and locking it with 2 protrusions beyond the shutter, that is, similar to Colt automation.

    In the mid-nineties, they had to shoot from this car. If my memory serves me - the patrons were ours (in my opinion, Barnaul). The pistol is excellent, it "sits" comfortably in the hand, the recoil is not more than that of the PM. Confused only by the fuse on the handle - you need a tight coverage. Apparently it just needs a habit. And so - the pistol is just candy !!!!

    I watched one of the "enemy" programs on TV, and they compared the Colt to our PM. PM won in the category - accuracy, thanks to the rigid fixation of the barrel in the frame, due to fewer delays during firing and less "fatigue" when firing. Although they also corrected that it is not entirely correct to compare the Colt and the PM, tk. PM is more of a police weapon, and the Colt is a military one.

    I watched a program where guns were compared. One of the comparison criteria was the breakdown power competition. We put five boards at 12,7 mm it seems. So this Colt M1911 did not really show itself. Despite the large caliber, he was able to break through only a couple of boards. And the most powerful was our TT-33. This one easily flashed through all the boards. The most drischev truth is also ours - “Nagan”. This only one board could break.

      Absolutely right! Colt has great stopping power, while TT has breakdown power. No trunk has complete harmony. Everyone chooses for himself)). He was interested in statistics on the use of pistols in the USA: 95% of fire contacts were no further than 15-20 meters. The Americans came - they were surprised that we were shooting pistols at 25-50 meters at the shooting range. They have training firing only at short distances. The main emphasis is on the speed of reaction and accuracy. But, our APS was completely delighted, they fired from it all day and praised it very much (which is rare for Americans).

      In general, the larger the caliber, the more difficult it is to break through an object.

      The most drishchevs are also ours - "Nagant".

      Nagan is ours only in production, but it was made by the Belgian Emil and Leon Nagans.
      Punching ability is not always good - the 7.62 mm TT path when firing at unprotected targets will most likely take off, giving up only part of the kinetic energy, while the 45 ASR bullet will remain in the body, and from 11.43 mm of the 45 ASR bullet the wound channel will be more.

      It was created not for the purpose of piercing boards, but a GUARANTEED defeat of the enemy, the TT bullet makes a neat hole and flies on, and the Colt bullet remains in the body giving all its energy. And if the wounded man with TT could fight for a long time, then after the defeat from the Colt this was not possible

      Nope. There were 8 boards of 25 mm each and struck not only the TT, but also Parabellum. The rest are stuck. Nagan struck just 2 boards. Colt - about 15 centimeters (either a wire or a shove rubbed into a hole). There were also Highpower and Luger. There is a video on YouTube, some kind of transfer, like Shock force, but I could be wrong. They compared weapons from the Second World War - pistols, rifles and PP.

Kolt and Haypauer did not penetrate the board right through however all the kinetic energy was given to the target. The maximum efficiency. Then there were no armor

      Usually, dry pine boards of an inch thickness with an interval between them of an inch were placed side by side for this test, and I am too lazy to search (by the way, in the book of V.G. Fedorov in more detail) if a revolving bullet at a distance of about 50 meters pierced three boards , then it was considered sufficient for a reliable defeat of a living target. Revolver "Nagan" this test passed in abundance, I remember that 5 inch boards confidently punched. Apparently, in your case, the live ammunition for the Nagan is very old, dumb already, there were either the sports V-1s, with a shellless lead bullet called a pizherub - a wadcutter, leaving round holes with even edges in the target plywood (to there were no “discrepancies” among the judges on the target line, when the bullet hit the “envelope”) and flattened into a cake when it “arrived” in solid objects.

        Because breakdown power is important in the army, it stops the police ...
        Plus the difference in weight and in the number of rounds in the store.
        And so it is necessary to adapt to any trunk, because twice is not enough, although as for me, the main gun is currently one of the best (after a bit of peeling - what can you do, the quality is lame), the pistols produced in the Russian Federation

And then it makes no difference what caliber the hole in them needs to be done. Colt's only advantage is that he immediately stops and types into the ground. With a hole from the TT, the enemy can still run a couple of steps.

      If you need to shoot in a situation where there is no time to aim, what would the target be? Head or body? There was a show for US military snipers in Iraq. There the leader asked them where they were shooting at targets, the answer was always in the body. Even a sniper head is a difficult target, especially a target in motion.

      Pistols with high stopping power are used by police units, because A "punchy" can, for example, flash a criminal and get into a civilian. Well, the shock effect from a large-caliber bullet is higher

      If your penetration is more important than stopping ability, then answer me 2 questions - why the rules of international humanitarian law, namely the Hague conventions, in armed conflicts allow the use of only enveloped bullets. 2 question - why did they invent and use bullets like SMJ, EL, HP?

      The target can be protected. Moreover, so that Colt simply can not penetrate it, but the TT-33 can and the difference in the end result is enormous (maybe even life-affirming).

      How can the target be protected? Bulletproof vests? Well, the army BZ was calculated on protection against intermediate and / or machine-gun rounds, therefore the pistol cartridge will not penetrate them. In addition, at the time of the creation and adoption of both models of BZ in the armies were not massively used. What else can be protected by the target? Shelter and various objects? Here situations may arise when penetration is needed, but not always.

      A person has a so-called vital organs (head, heart, large arteries, etc.) getting into which is almost guaranteed to kill.

      But what is the probability of getting into these organs? and if the target moves? and if it’s not a special forces soldier who shoots, but a simple infantryman? And if there is no time to aim?

      Quote: Krang
      Colt's only advantage is that he immediately stops and types into the ground.

      Who told you that? If you get into the head, there have been cases when the pistol bullets even powerful cartridges did not pierce the skull. but about getting into the torso, even more so. According to the results of the Strassburg tests, the best indicators for the stopping action were shown by prefragmented bullets (collapsing, expansive) - putting the target out of action for 3-5 seconds !!!
      Quote: Krang
      With a hole from the TT, the enemy can still run a couple of steps.

      and it can run even more, especially if the bullet went to take off, it can survive. The same applies to 45 ACPs.

    I shot it somehow from this machine. It’s very comfortable, the recoil is soft. Like many people didn’t like the fuse on the handle. You need to learn specific grip, otherwise it won’t work at the right time. It’s also a heavy dog. For a century-old construction, it’s just a masterpiece, it’s not for nothing that the Americans love it, and it was popular among us, judging by various memories. At the same time, it has passed — for a military weapon and a store more voluminously, it is necessary to have less weight and a breakdown ability higher. For a civilian, it’s heavy and great.

    The handle would be more comfortable on the TT, and even compensate for its "tossing" when firing. And so, I liked the TT identity more than a revolver. Unfortunately, I didn't shoot from the Colt.

        Hungary ordered an upgraded version of the TT pistol, the TT-58, at the Egyptian company FEG, sometimes called the Tokajipt. Later, the gun was equipped with a more convenient plastic handle in the Walter style and a magazine with a plastic protrusion.

    Good trunk. I have it since 2001 and there is no desire to change it. Oh, how many rounds of ammunition I shot at the shooting range, I don’t even count a single misfire.

    By grayness, when I saw this gun, the first thought was damn how to shoot from it, the hole is almost like a heavy machine gun !? I was wildly surprised that it’s not just that I wasn’t swept away by the recoil, but he just doesn’t hit me in the arm and the barrel returns almost immediately to the aiming line, it practically doesn’t throw him up. The only shitty thing is to drag him on himself by torture into what kind of cabaret you do not shove. Well, very heavy. When during the night, until the sun comes out again and everything is hot, you need to go 20-25km this is very critical. According to this, apart from watching and popping a bit from this beautiful machine, things didn’t go any further.

    that's for sure, the GSh was created by the masters of our weapons business, and they probably already did

      I agree. The workmanship is already very "ugly" ... Do not compare with the TT of post-war issues or PM stagnant years.

    This is from the series, EVERYTHING is big only in America, the first breast implants, then the buttock implants and egg implants, while the recognized indicator is not useful, the still smelly Rommel said it would be better to meet 30 American soldiers, traders and buggers than 5 Russians !!!

    [A significant shortcoming of weapons, according to experts, is a large mass.]

    It is impossible to make it easier for such a cartridge. And the pistol-cartridge complex itself was designed almost perfectly for that time (when bulletproof vests were not worn). The low speed of the bullet was not chosen by chance, but by analogy with the characteristics of large-caliber revolving cartridges that had a good stopping effect. The bullet should stop in the object, and not punch it through, then all the kinetic energy will be used correctly. (cartridge for Nagan made exactly the same) Large caliber and large mass of bullets also increase the damaging factor, also takes into account the preference of Americans to weapons of large calibers. you can come to terms when a guaranteed defeat of the enemy with one shot is required.

    I saw this barrel for the first time at the age of sixteen in the Museum of Artillery and Engineering Troops in Leningrad, by the way, by the way, it also stood like that with the barrel to the visitor ... it was my first not a little shock ... if you also keep in mind that a couple of halls in front of or after I examined the DShK .... But over time, this shock went away for one reason - we were "bent" to the target direction, well, I don’t know how anyone, but it turned out that it’s better to start a series of three in one target .. .two in the "navel" and the rest is higher and care, I do not know how in life, but at the training ground ... beautifully passed the tests.

    With a lot of weight, you can put up with when you need a guaranteed defeat of the enemy with one shot.

    And in this case too? (JOKE wink )
    The world’s largest revolver was made by gunsmith Ryszard Tobys. The revolver is the world's largest and most powerful pistol, which is an exact copy of the Remington 1859 revolver. The world's largest revolver and its manufacturer, Richard Tobis. A 28 mm caliber revolver (bullet weight 138 g) was created on a 3 to 1 scale: its length is 126 cm with a weight of 45 kg.

    I watched a program where guns were compared. One of the comparison criteria was the breakdown power competition. We put five boards at 12,7 mm it seems. So this Colt M1911 did not really show itself. Despite the large caliber, he was able to break through only a couple of boards. And the most powerful was our TT-33. This one easily flashed through all the boards. The most drischev truth is also ours - “Nagan”. This only one board could break.


    If I’m not mistaken, more than one TT turned out to be the best in this program. On penetration of these boards at the level “Walther” P.38 came out with it, but on the stopping power the German beat Tokarev. hi
