    Default U.S. Pistol M1911A1 .45cal ACP

    Heya, all!

    Everyone is familar with the U. S. standard issue sidearm of WWII and after, the M1911A1. Originally adopted in 1911 as the M1911, improvements led to the M1911A1 in 1924, with over 2.7 million of them procured for American military service until their replacement in 1985.

    But how about the non-typical M1911's?

    There is the M1911 modified for Air Service (US Army Air Service) during WWI. Fed from a extended 25 round magazine, and equiped with a mesh cage to catch ejected casings.



    There was also a production simplified pistol, in .45 ACP, using M1911 components and made out of stamped steel.



    How about a stocked, selective fire version? The Germans had their Artillery Luger, and the British had a "longer ranged" stocked version of the Browning, but how about the U. S.? All I've found was this video... I don't remember where I originally found the link (d'oh!) but do recall that it was mentioned that a limited number of these were "officially" produced for possible issue as aircrew defensive weapons.

    I'm not sureif it was Col. Davis Schilling or not, but I remember one of the well known figher pilots in the ETO made a .45 1911 into a machinepistol.

    Converting a M1911 to fire full auto is not very difficult.

    Many years ago, as an Army MP, my MP company had the damndest time getting .45 ACP ammo to shoot at the range. The plan was for the whole company to qualify / requalify with our sidearms (M1911A1's), but we never got enough ammo to do that. All of a sudden one year, we got a LOAD of .45 ACP ammo! The powers that be must have taken our yearly requests, added them together, and then doubled or tripled it, and then sent us the ammo. This caused much consternation... see, typical mindless bueracracy that the military was, if you request something, but then don't use it all up for whatever task it was intended for, never mind how obscenely over the top the issue is, than the determination is made that "you" really didn't need so much, and following issues will take that into account. Pretty much a "damned if you do, and double damned if you don't" situation.

    So, after the entire company shoots their quals, a hugh amount of ammo is still left. Company commander, on advice of supply sergeant, orders that ammo has to be "shot up". A small detachment of men, under the watchful eyes of an ex-armorer, makes "adjustments" to their weapons allowing them to fire full-auto. The rest of the company procedes to open up, unpack, and fill pistol magazines so the shooters can shoot up our over abundance. Having nothing more then the standard 7 round magazines standard to the M1911, it took a little bit of time, but, eventually, the "mission" was accomplished.

    Without going into definately illegal / criminal details, the "adjustments" were easily done without handtools (other than a pocketknife, perhaps). The difference between the gun in the video and these was the selector on the factory "modified" weapon.

    I've read and heard dicussions about the relative ease that many WWII weapons were converted to full-auto fire. I think it's here on ww2incolor that there's a post about M1 Rifles (Garands) being GI modified into full-auto rifles... not bad except for only having an 8 round capacity!

    Which is why my and other reserve units had an annual 'yippee shoot', to fire off every live round we could find, to make sure our allocation wasn't reduced the next year.

    Probably not a lot of training value, but bloody good fun.

    Not to mention all of the paperwork needed to turn in unused ammunition. I'm not sure the military pipeline has a "return" in it. They dont seem to understand the idea at all.

    GI mods are more fairy tales than reality.

    You want a piece that is reliable and accurate.

    Mods are niether.
    A FA Garand would be good for a boat anchor.

    Can't say that some folks didn't monkey with weapons-just not a common or allowed activity.

    I did have a cast off M2 carbine in VN that had a cut off barrel and stock.
    I saw a few M79s with the same treatment.

    Being irregular, we had a bit more room for such shenanigans.

    Just a few years ago, the DON procured some NEW M1911A1s manufactured by Kimber for Fleet Marine Forces. I guess improved sights, tighter tolerances, improved safety features similar to the new Series 80 civilian Colts and some improved ergonomic features could be considered "non-typical." I liked the old M1911A1 service pistols that we were issued for security duty when I was in the Submarine Service over 30 years ago, but I am confident that they are all gone now. The newest one would have been 65 years old this year.

    Below is a link to an image of a World War I-era .45 M1911 government auto-pistol as used by U.S. troops in World War I. I hope it comes out.

    Note that they had lanyard rings on the base of the magazines as well as the pistol itself. That purpose was for mounted cavalry use. Remember, the M1911 was adopted in 1912 when horse cavalry units were very common. The metal to metal fitting was excellent on these early pistols and the finish was a beautiful deep blue. The grips were checkered walnut with diamond shaped reliefs around the grip screws.

    Later pistols made between the world wars and during World War II had arched mainspring housings, shortened triggers, more room for the trigger finger against the frame, brown plastic grips and they were Parkerized using the oxidation process which left a dull green/gray color. They also looked good in their own way, but only after many years of use and cleaning. Finally the manufacturers of the older pistols (1911s) were Colt, the government owned Springfield Armory, Remington Arms Company (RAC), and North American Arms of Canada. There were about 700,000 M1911 service pistols produced from 1912 to about 1924. There were about 2.2 million of the newer M1911A1 service pistols produced from 1925 to 1945 by Remington-Rand, Colt, Ithaca, Union Switch & Signal and Singer in order of most produced. During World War II, 1911s and 1911A1s were issued without regard to design and most of the parts were interchangeable.

    After 1945, there were no more frames and slides produced, but there were still production periods of new barrels, bushings, springs, magazines, grips, and other small parts until the very late 60s. In 1986, the M1911A1 was "officially" replaced by the 9mm M9 Beretta service pistol (about 700,000 to date) and production continues to the present. The M1911A1 continued as a "supplemental issue" pistol until 1991 after the 91 Persian Gulf War where many were still in use by Army National Guard units and some Navy and Marine units. The regular Army, Air Force and Coast Guard had already transitioned to the newer pistol.

    If you see contemporary images of M1911A1 pistols in use today, they will be a limited purchase of Kimber 1911A1s purchased by the Navy for the Fleet Marine Forces Afloat for boarding parties.

    Below is another link. It is an image comparing the World War I M1911 service pistol and the later M1911A1 service pistol most common during World War II. It is interesting to note that the U.S. produced 900,000 Smith & Wesson .38 special service revolvers as supplementary sidearms too, but that is another thread.

    much better the A1 better handling,faster firing.
    The 1911 is more robust with sharp lines.
    If anyone have good quality photo from the 1911 or the A1 using in field under ww2,it would be nice!

    It looks like all of the finish is gone, or perhaps it was painted silver. I noticed the grips look painted?

    imi, actually finding a 1911 pistol in use during the World War I period is more difficult than I thought. I found this link of a group of American soldiers, c. World War I, perhaps before they deployed to Europe. Since they are "all" armed with pistols, I have to assume that they are horse cavalrymen. Like the infantry, they would have also been armed with standard issue M1903 service rifles as indicated by their cartridge belts. The pistol would have been used as an offensive weapon in the saddle while the service rifle would have been used when the troopers were dismounted.
