The M1911A1 is a Clip Pistol weapon in Wasteland.

Background[edit | edit source]

The 1911A1 was the standard sidearm of the previous two world wars. The .45 slug, held in an 8-shot magazine, was first developed to stop Moro rebels in the Philippines. In its current role, it has no trouble slowing down desert raiders or the occasional mutant cactus. Many Desert Rangers find this a perfect weapon to take with them when they first head into the wastelands.[1]

It is also quite popular among various wasteland vagabonds, however its low magazine capacity makes the VP91Z 9mm Pistol a better choice as a sidearm.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The M1911 is one of the starting weapons of the Rangers, the other being a VP91Z 9mm pistol.
