Semi-automatic pistol, fed from a detachable magazine. Almost a century-old design, it can still hold its own in a fight. Uses .45 ACP rounds. — In-game description

The Kolt 1911 is a type of weapon in DayZ. It is a potent sidearm which fires .45 ACP rounds, the highest-caliber pistol ammunition in the game.


The Kolt 1911 is a .45 ACP caliber pistol, with good sights, accuracy, recoil and damage. Although having a lower than average magazine capacity of 7 rounds, it out performs most pistols in stopping power and gun shot noise when suppressed. The .45 ACP round is subsonic with a muzzle velocity of 260m/s, making it most suitable for a suppressor. As it will get rid of the suppressor pop and lessens the noise over a distance, giving you more stealth in bigger cities and high traffic locations from infected and other survivors. It's counterpart is the FX-45, while many players favor the latter thanks to double the magazine size and the ability to equip a pistol red dot sight. The 1911 boasts more easily-locatable magazines compared to the FX-45, making the 1911 far more favoured in early and mid game.
