The Colt Model 1905 is the first sidearm ever to use the .45 ACP cartridge. Thus, an important piece for collectors of 1911 pistols, U.S. military arms, or early semi-automatic Colt pistols. A bit less recognized than its earlier and later counterparts, the Colt Model 1905 is an critical step in the evolution of the M1911. It is also a fascinating mix of characteristics of early Colts that allow us to see past and future designs in a single pistol.
