A M1911A1 type pistol in the stainless steel style, with little customised grips.
About this creation
The actual M1911 pistol was designed by John M. Browning for the Colt company, and adopted by the US army in [surprise] 1911. It was modified in the aftermath of WWI into the M1911A1, and served in WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and other, smaller conflicts until being replaced by the Beretta handgun, the M92F, in the 1980's. But enough about that, the point is that I wanted to build one. And, this is the result. Quite obviously, it's a replica of the stainless steel model 1911A1, but it does have some interesting features within. First of all, you can see in some of the shots that the action in housed inside the pistol directly above the grip. In previous multi-shot pistols, suchas the M93R, the action was placed in front of the grip, which was connected to the gun via two 1x10 bricks wtih Technic holes. Here, the grip is attached with skinny technic liftarms, which the action travels in between. This give the rubber band more space to stretch and the gun more room for realistic features, such as the ejection port. Also, the grips on this pistol are removable, and you can see that hidden behind them are several magnet parts, which add a little more weight to the grip. Oh well, just look at the pictures.
This is GREAT! I love the detail on here. I know it may sound a little annoying, but I would love it if you could send some instructions. I'm trying to build one for Social Studies, and it would help to have a guide. Please contact.
i think it would have looked cooler with the brown grip, if i made this gun, i would have given it a more universal name, the Colt .45 handgun, also, a little info, this was the favored side-arm of the British and American Paratroopers in WW2, 2 divisions, British 6th Airborne, and the 82nd and 101st Ariborne
