Rockstar gives us an in-depth look at one of Max Payne's long-serving weapons, the 1911 semi-automatic pistol. In Max Payne 3, these can be dual-wielded and are extremely hard-hitting.
- Caliber – .45
- Capacity – 8 rounds
- Range – 40 meters
- Barrel Length – 5"

We've managed to get our hands on some screenshots of this beast in action, and a full 360-degree rendering is also available at http://www.rockstargames.com/maxpayne3/weapons/the1911/.
For Max Payne, the tragedies that took his loved ones years ago are wounds that refuse to heal. No longer a cop, close to washed up and addicted to pain killers, Max takes a job in São Paulo, Brazil, protecting the family of wealthy real estate mogul Rodrigo Branco, in an effort to finally escape his troubled past. But as events spiral out of his control, Max Payne finds himself alone on the streets of an unfamiliar city, desperately searching for the truth and fighting for a way out.
Max Payne 3 is due out on May 15th for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with the PC version launching the 29th. More information can be found at http://www.rockstargames.com/.
