It was 100 years ago today that the U.S. Army officially adopted the Colt Model 1911, and the most popular pistol ever was born.
Designed by gun icon John Browning, the .45 caliber, semi-automatic, self-loading pistol's short recoil system revolutionized handgun design.
This gun is so iconic, that Browning's home state of Utah is even making it the state's official gun!
Happy Birthday Colt M1911!
