The first Colt Government Models said "Colt Automatic" over ".45 Caliber." It didn't say semi-automatic and it didn't say "1911." The ones they made for the government were 1911s, then 1911A1s. The ones they made for civilian sale were just "Government Models." ACP stands for Automatic Colt Pistol.

Beware of imitations and patent infringements.
Shoot low, sheriff. They're riding Shetlands!
Underneath the starry flag, civilize 'em with a Krag,
and return us to our own beloved homes!
Buy War Bonds.
