The .45 Caliber round was designed in 1904 by John Browning and put into production in 1905. The US Cavalry spent the 1890s in search of a replacement for its .38 Colt revolvers and discovered that, in general, greater stopping power was needed for men in the field. Throughout the early 20th century, a lack of stopping power was discovered in primary sidearms in the militaries of both the United States and Great Britain.
Browning’s design of the .45 Caliber round delivered the stopping power the United States Army was looking for, and it was put the test almost immediately after adoption as US soldiers and Marines deployed for World War I on the battlefields of Europe with the new M1911 pistol at the ready.

Each of these silver bullets is available to you with a rhodium plating throughout and a layer of 24-karat gold applied to the bullet portion of the round. The application of the rhodium plating provides a mirrored finish to the entire product.
