In 1911, John Moses Browning invented the 1911 pistol, where it was adopted by the United States Army as its primary sidearm.
Two years later in 1913, the US Marines and the US Navy liked it so much they followed suit and did the same. From then until 1986 when the 1911 was replaced by the Beretta M9.
This workhorse has served the US Military in more wars and conflicts than any other firearm, which makes it an extremely solid piece of the history of the United States.
