Prior to the 1911, the semi auto designs of the era were considered as overly complex novelties. The 1911 proved that the semi automatic pistol should be taken seriously and the 45acp cartridge showed that serious lethality could be delivered from the auto. The 1911 and 45acp caused a paradigm shift that influenced the rest of the world.
