The M1911, known simply as 1911 and nicknamed "Colt .45" or "Colt 1911", is an American semi-automatic handgun. It is one of the most common and popular handguns in the world. This weapon is used by both criminals and lawmen alike.


The M1911 is a basic handgun and deals a moderate amount of damage. The M1911 can be dual-wielded with another M1911, and other single handed firearms. A suppressor can also be attached to it. The M1911 can also hold 12 rounds in a magazine when made golden in single player.


The M1911 is used by the DeMarco Crime Family, as one of their main sidearms during their hunt after Max Payne, along with the Micro 9mm, and the M10.

The Brazilian Unidade de Forças Especiais officers also used the M1911 commonly as one of their sidearms, along with the PT92.

Social Club descriptionEdit

The 1911 pistol is a single-action, semi-auto handgun with .45 caliber rounds. This is a comparable weapon to the PT92, although the 1911 sacrifices clip size for a better range.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Unlike a real M1911, the pistol has a double action trigger in game.

Canonical errorEdit

When Rockstar released a promotional Max Payne 3 video clip about the M1911, in the video, it stated that Max Payne used the gun since the early days of his police career. Not long after the debut of the video, fans wrote comments to Rockstar, saying that the developers must have confused the weapon with the Beretta, Max's signature pistol since Max Payne. Rockstar noticed the mistake, issued an update acknowledging it and uploaded a new video replacing the old one, which now did not feature the erroneous info.

In-game errorEdit

In The Great American Savior of the Poor, it appears in the beginning cutscene. Although, there should've been a PT92 instead, being that the chapter begins with that gun.
