"Legendary classics - Colt 1911 .45 caliber; One of the most customizable and respected gun in history. Actively used by specialists exactly in this classic variant."
- — Description.
The M1911A1 is a tier 6 pistol.
The M1911A1 is now available in unbreakable status for free to all players when they reach level 20.
The M1911A1 is a pistol with moderate accuracy, moderate recoil, high damage, good penetration, a moderate fire-rate, good mobility, a very low magazine size (coupled with low ammunition reserves), an extremely fast reload speed, and very low damage fall-off (coupled with a good effective distance). Overall, the M1911A1 is a very unique pistol, and it can be potent in the right hands.
With the appropriate Skills, the M1911A1's reload speed becomes nearly instantaneous, allowing it to dish out a constant stream of damage. In the long-run, this makes it even more effective at sustained-fire than weapons like the Glock 18, OTs-33 Pernach, and FN 5-7. However, despite the fact that the M1911A1 has a lot of magazines in reserve, this doesn't add up to a lot of individual rounds since its magazine size is so small.
The M1911A1 deals very high damage-per-shot, even higher than that of the H&K USP from Set 2. Coupled with the lowest damage fall-off of any semi-automatic or fully-automatic pistol in the game (though not the best effective distance), this allows the M1911A1 to dish out huge damage at any range.
Unfortunately, for novice players or players in HardCore Mode, the M1911A1 does become a bit more of a situational weapon, due to the hindrance of its small magazine size becoming more noticeable.
The M1911A1 has a unique, sleek design instead of the generic black coating on most pistols.
The M1911A1 is perhaps most similar to the TT pistol from the Spec Set. Compared to the TT, the M1911A1 has lower accuracy, lower recoil, lower damage, a similar fire-rate, one fewer magazine in a clip, a faster reload speed, lower damage fall-off, worse effective distance, and much worse penetration (due to the TT having extremely good penetration). Overall, the TT is slightly better, though the TT is very expensive to acquire, hence the M1911A1 is a good alternative. Notably, since the TT can only be acquired with a certain Scout Skill progression, the TT will always be acquired with all of the pistol Skills unlocked.
