Throughout American History, Colt's weapons have given American Servicemen the ability and confidence to succeed in combat. A reproduction based on the original blueprints 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". Today's Black Army features a matte blued finish; Colt's Series 70 firing system; original rollmarks and inspector marks 5 inches barrel with wide hood, smooth, straight mainspring housing with lanyard loop; WWI-style manual thumb and grip safety; a tapered blade front sight; forged knurled slide stop; and knurled thumb safety and magazine catch.
