The Colt M1911 is a semi-automatic, magazine-fed, single-action .45 caliber handgun. John Browning sold the original design to Colt, when it became the standard-issue side arm for the United States Armed Forces from 1911 to 1985, and modernized variants of the M1911 are still carried by some US special forces units today, although it was largely phased out in favor of the M9 pistol. It fires the .45 ACP round, which causes more tissue disruption than the 9mm Parabellum, but has more recoil and has lower ammunition capacity when compared to similarly sized 9mm handguns.

The M1911 is a weapon featured in Insurgency. It first became available in the December 12, 2014 content update. The weapon is exclusive to the Insurgent faction. The M1911's stats are identical to the M45.
The M1911 has the highest damage output and recoil of all pistols. It also features the smallest pistol magazine capacity. Considering these factors, the M1911 is best suited for close range combat. It may be equipped with a suppressor and a flashlight or laser sight.
As of October 27, 2015, an extended magazines attachment was added. It added 8 rounds to the total capacity of the M1911, going from 7+1 rounds to 15+1 rounds. With the cost of two supply points, the attachment bridges the gap between the high capacity M9 and the high damage M1911's .45 ACP cartridge.
