A really nice example of a newly built K11, as opposed to conversions of earlier 1896 Rifles

In addition to modernizing their old rifles, in 1913, the Model 1911 was formally adopted.

These rifles, along with those converted to the new pattern, fired the new GP11 round.

The 1911 possessed all the improvements of the converted Schmidt-Rubin 1896/11 Rifle.

127,000 1911 Rifles were produced from 1913 to 1919.
