The ProMet MV1911 is a Russian made fully automatic variation of the famous Colt M1911 handgun.
The ProMet MV1911 was envisioned in 2031 by the head of the ProMet design department, Arkadi Virmov. Shortly after the blueprints were drawn up and a working model was created, ProMet received orders for the weapon from several different security agencies. Weapon trials commenced in 2033. The MV1911 proved to be problematical when fired in fully automatic mode. The weapon trials were halted until the problem was solved. Trials were resumed in 2034. The MV1911 showed promise, and was adopted by several Russian security agencies, along with Polish GROM forces. A civilian version that fired in single shots only was produced in 2036.
Rate of Fire: 2200 rpm
Effective Range: 47 m
Caliber: .45 ACP
Magazine size: 75 rounds (15 rounds for civilian version)
Fire modes available: Fully automatic, 3-round burst, single shots.
The ProMet MV1911 is capable of accepting most forms of underbarrel attachments. While a foregrip is usually the best choice when firing in fully automatic mode, the MV1911 can accept laser modules and flashlights. Several barrel lengths are available, including barrels capable of accepting suppressors. The above barrel rail can accept a wide range of optics. The stock is removable in military versions only.
The ProMet MV1911 has seen extensive use in the continuing Chechen conflict. It has gained a sort of respect from both those that use it and those it is used against. Chechens often discard their old handguns (or in some cases, sub-machine guns) in favor of the MV1911. This has led to the introduction of personal user recognition. This causes the gun to remember its original users hand form. If the gun does not recognize the hand form of the person using it, it will not fire.
The MV1911 was used by GROM operatives in the Krakow Embassy Incident.
Several MV1911s found their way into the hands of Chilean insurgents in the Pan-American Conflict.
An undisclosed number of MV1911s were delivered to the KEST of Japan.
