Colt 45, Real or replica?


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I've been asked by a non member of the Forum to appeal for information on a Colt 45 pistol that was recently acquired. It was assumed that it was a replica but certain features are what you would expect of a real weapon (The gun can be stripped down to component parts) so it would be helpful if someone could identify exactly what it is please?

Thanks in advance.

BKA replica guns, but I haven't found a Colt M1911 A1. 

Images of other BKA pistols:-


Just found this:-

"BKA" is a German sign of approval for a deactivated weapon"


Unfortunately I haven't found any images of "BKA" on a replica or deac.

This M1911A1 is a "DENIX" replica, made in Spain. Apparently an old one, I had exactly the same some time ago.

It does indeed strip like the original but is clearly a replica, and not a part would fit a "real" weapon. Nor would I try to shoot it given the low-quality metal used for its fabrication...

My penny worth... 😉
