I could be wrong but I believe a 1911 is an old old wooden ship used in the civil war era.

1911 Colt .45 ACP

*EDIT* *John Browning design*

We were still using them in 1994. I carried one through Desert Storm. They didn't just yank them, they removed them from service and replaced them as they got too old.
