the .45 in the 1911A1 variation was the US military's primary semiautomatic sidearm from its introduction prior to WWI until its replacement by the Beretta M9 in the mid-1980s. Millions were manufactured and sold both to the military as well civilian buyers. Even the gangsters of Prohibition and the violent post-Prohibition era in the early and mid 1930s employed .45's due to its reliability and impact power, as well as its ammunition also being the same as that used in the popular Thompson sub machine gun.
