New Made Item: This inert display completely non-firing replica is true to the Model 1911 original. IMA is proud to offer a full sized 1: 1 scale completely non-firing dummy 1911 display gun. You can even break it down and reassemble! Great for training or practice. This non firing model is a replica of the standard government issue sidearm of the U.S. soldier since 1911 and made famous in historical pictures of WWII. The M1911A1 had tremendous stopping power that saved countless soldiers lives for 8 decades.  Features: Can be disassembled and reassembled Length: 9.5" Weight: 2.5 lbs, Dark Wood Grips, Black Finish. This is the high quality replica. It looks and feels are just like an original. Grips made from hard wood with sturdy metal (zinc) functional parts, the action functions (nothing can be chambered, clip is non-functional and hollow) and the cocked trigger gives a satisfying "snap". This is a premier collector's replica, perfect for historical display, reenactment, or a burglar's decoy left just outside your gun safe! Pair it with a replica holster, lanyard, for added wartime authenticity; all of these accessories and many more are available separately.

The M1911 also known as the Browning Pistol is a single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, recoil-operated pistol chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge.[1] It served as the standard-issue sidearm for the United States Armed Forces from 1911 to 1986. It was widely used in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War as well as the Soviet–Afghan War. The pistol's formal designation as of 1940 was Automatic Pistol, Caliber .45, M1911 for the original model of 1911 or Automatic Pistol, Caliber .45, M1911A1 for the M1911A1, adopted in 1924. The designation changed to Pistol, Caliber .45, Automatic, M1911A1 in the Vietnam War era.  The U.S. procured around 2.7 million M1911 and M1911A1 pistols in military contracts during its service life. The M1911 was replaced by the 9mm Beretta M9 pistol as the standard U.S. sidearm in October 1986, but due to its popularity among users, it has not been completely phased out. Modernized derivative variants of the M1911 are still in use by some units of the U.S. Army Special Forces and the U.S. Navy.  Designed by John Browning, the M1911 is the best-known of his designs to use the short recoil principle in its basic design. The pistol was widely copied, and this operating system rose to become the preeminent type of the 20th century and of nearly all modern centerfire pistols. It is popular with civilian shooters in competitive events such as USPSA, IDPA, International Practical Shooting Confederation, and Bullseye shooting. Compact variants are popular civilian concealed carry weapons in the U.S. because of the design's relatively slim width and stopping power of the .45 ACP cartridge.
