Colt replica from obomodulan

Nov 10, 2016

The Colt M1911, milled from two sides and glued together. The Colt M1911 is a semi-automatic gun designed by John Browning and manufactured by the company Colt's Manufacturing Company. The gun was used in many wars including the First World War, the Second World War, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. We thought it would be nice to copy these, not as a working specimen, but for decoration, made of obomodulan and later silver sprayed. The handles are milled out of wood (padoek).

We were able to make these using the Solidworks design by Steen Winther, which can be found at
