Where do you start with this thing? It's everywhere!!! First launched in 1975 after 5 years development this gun started it's quest to take over the world by laying down new standards of safety, reliability and endurance to meet the needs of demanding customers. First to spot its appeal after testing were the Brazilian government, and several followed - but what really got things moving was its entry to the Joint Service Small Arms Program, abbreviated JSSAP which was to coordinate weapon standardization between the various U.S. armed service branches. This was set up to replace the Colt M1911A and various others in use, and in 1985 it finally won - becoming the de facto military sidearm of choice to the present day. Its widespread popularity means you'll see it in many movies - check a few of them out below, and then go and get yourself a 9mm!
