The M1911 (the '1911' suffix comes from the year it was adopted by the US Army, after extensive tests) was the standard pistol for the US Army right up until the early 1990s, when it was replaced by the M9. It did not change much from the original award winning design, apart from minor alterations following WW1. 1.9 million of these were produced over the course of the Second World War, and many of them would still be being used in the Vietnam war. It is a semi-automatic pistol which fires .45 caliber rounds and has a capacity of 8 bullets.

Weapon stats:
(mouseover the icons for explanation)
Maximum damage; the minimum is always 1 Effective firing range, in pixels (for reference, the game field is 400px wide by 600px tall) Firing rate, in rounds per burst. All guns have the same actual rate, this just says how many in one burst. Clip size Reload time, in ticks (20 ticks = 1 second); the less, the better; the unit's exp is deducted from this value, getting faster as it ranks up
? ? ? 7 ?
CQC (close quarter combat) bonus multiplier; the unit's rifle skill is multiplied by this value when firing at a distance of 100px or less Range malus; the unit's rifle skill is divided by this penalty when firing beyond the weapon's range AP (anti-personnel) explosion radius; area of the blast that damages all units, but deals reduced damage to vehicles AT (anti-tank) explosion radius; area of the blast that deals special damage to mechanical units Gib explosion radius; area of the blast that blows all organic units caught in it to pieces

Strengths:
Lightweight, portable, concealable
Weaknesses:
Minimal damage, range, and clip
Description:
A puny pistol that will only minimally equip its user for battle.

A weak pistol, minimal battle power. This weapon is very bad for combat as seen in MnB2. Luckily this isn't too commonly seen as M-14 and M-16. You have about same changes of getting a soldier with this weapon as the chance of getting a soldier with M-60, M-40, Mossberg 500 or M3 Grease Gun. Though, a soldier with high accuracy can actually kill someone if placed on the trench near the edge of the forest as when a VC soldier comes out of the forest into the open, he is very close to the soldier with pistol and pistols were made to kill someone from close range. They are not effective when assaulting enemy positions and men with pistol are best as meatshields or sent directly at the enemy so they might have a chance of killing him or getting into a CQC fight with him.

It is also seen in Mud and Blood 2 (link).
