Excuse my ignorance but who made the original 1911? And what did the troops carry?
I believe John Browning was the inventor and the troops carried colts

John Moses Browning January 23, 1855[1] – November 26, 1926), born in Ogden, Utah, was an American firearms designer who developed many varieties of military and civilian firearms, cartridges, and gun mechanisms, many of which are still in use around the world. He is arguably the most important figure in the development of modern automatic and semi-automatic firearms and is credited with 128 gun patents.[2] He made his first firearm at age 13 in his father's gun shop, and was awarded his first patent on October 7, 1879 at the age of 24.[3]

Browning influenced nearly all categories of firearms design. He invented or made significant improvements to single-shot, lever-action, and slide-action, rifles and shotguns. His most significant contributions were arguably in the area of autoloading firearms. He developed the first autoloading pistols that were both reliable and compact by inventing the telescoping bolt, integrating the bolt and barrel shroud into what is known as the pistol slide. Browning's telescoping bolt design is now found on nearly every modern semi-automatic pistol, as well as several modern fully automatic weapons. He also developed the first gas-operated machine gun, the Colt-Browning Model 1895—a system that surpassed mechanical recoil operation to become the standard for most high-power self-loading firearm designs worldwide. Browning would also make significant contributions to automatic cannon development.

Browning's most successful designs include the M1911 pistol, the Browning .50 caliber machine gun, the Browning Automatic Rifle, and the Browning Auto-5, a ground-breaking semi-automatic shotgun. These arms are nearly identical today to those assembled by Browning, with only minor changes in detail and cosmetics. Even today, John Browning's guns are still some of the most copied guns in the world.
Thanks for the info figured someone would be along with a great explanation...

Get a 1911. Don't let an exploded diagram scare you away from a true masterpiece. You won't regret it. And wait til you see all the "mods" ;) for the 1911 platform, your head will look like that diagram. :D
+1! It is a bit of work compared but it is a masterpiece and a firearm forever stamped in history. I'll always have one in the safe.

He probably has/had amazing lawyers. I'm not really sure about it though but safe to say he has to be felony free to be in that business. ...I think.
He also owns a ton of full auto rifles and has showed them off on TV more than once. Pretty sure he's beat any charges
