    66 Years old and still the most well know fire arm. Will not be surprised if it is still being passed around in another 100 years.

    A 100 years at least mate!... I'll say the good old Lee Enfield which has already passed the 100 year mark!.....

    Browning .50 cal HMG-to be honest the M1911 pistol, while produced and carried in large numbers, has never been a primary combat weapon like the .50 has ever since it's introduction as an AA, light AT, Air to Air etc etc MG.

    Good calls fella's.
    Agreed with the .50 cal. Lithgow a fine multi purpose weapon but the 1911A1 was possibly one of the most capable military sidearms ever designed for the purpose of stopping a man in his tracks. It's all about that nasty little low velocity .45APC round IMO. One hit and your messed up badly.
    That's why those who faced the Thompson SMG feared them greatly, it could turn you into mince meat real fast. The Japanese targeted Australians carrying Thompsons for this reason early in the SWP battles.
    Many US servicemen cringed when the US military went over to the 9mm Beretta back in the 80's. Lost a people stopper for a hole driller.
    I'm happy with the old 1911A1 for sure.

    Keep them coming Gents
