There's a good reason the M1911 has become a staple among American gun owners -- two World Wars, baby! Since the U.S. Army adopted the iconic Colt pistol in 1911, the .45 ACP platform has been used by military units worldwide. It wasn’t until the 1980s that the U.S. military finally moved on from the famed design in favor of something a bit more modern.
Though you can find M1911s in a variety of calibers today, .45 ACP continues to reign supreme. With prices ranging from hundreds to tens of thousands of dollars, we've gathered a list geared towards budget-minded M1911 shoppers.
