i1911 Handgun From Apple

Apple wants a piece of the market:

I have the following questions:

  1. Will have a user replaceable magazine?
  2. Does it use proprietary .45 caliber ammunition?
  3. Where’s the touch screen?
  4. Is this a grasp at the liberal hippy market?
  5. How many times per month will I have to upgrade the software on it?
  6. Does it require the newest version of that POS iTunes?
  7. What kind of fancy apps can I get for it?

John Moses Browning is rolling in his grave right now… :P

Face it. You’ve always wanted to fight with some kind of awesome theme song playing. With the new i1911, you can!

Is that a standard rail on the i1911? Next you’re going to tell me it actually shoots .45ACP. Doesn’t sound very Apple to me.

hehe yea its gotta be different somehow.. making something to comply with industry standards definitely doesn’t sound like them.

I bet it shoots a unique .47 cartridge with identical ballistics, but can’t operate with anything .45!

Will it cost 2x or 3x more than another 1911 made with the same parts?

I bet the picatinny rail on it is different enough to not allow attachements from other products.
I also bet you can’t field strip it either. It will have to be sent in for cleaning.

It costs 5 times more than a Glock, is 5 times less intuitive, and uses a proprietary .22 round.

Is it designed with “planned obsolescence” in mind, like the iPods?

Yea, I’m assuming apple will just stop rolling out new firmware around the time a new OS gets released for them. :P

To get serious though, I saw Remington is about to produce a 1911. Iver Johnson is back as well. The design is near 100 years old, and it still sings the song. My choice.

Yea that Remington one doesn’t really impress me. I’ll have to look into Iver Johnson, I didn’t know they were back.

It looks like a 1911, but all of the parts have slightly different dimensions and therefore are proprietary, including the rails, which only take Apple-brand accessories. Fires the 10.5x22mm MAC (MacIntosh Autoloading Cartridge) which is produced only in Silicon Valley — MSRP $129.99 per box of 20. Projectiles are completely lead free (unlike Mac computers).

Sounds reasonable. I bet they will sell out the first day, and have lineups everywhere. hehe

I bet it shoots .45 GAP instead of ACP ;)

haha I’m always down for some Glock jokes :P

Probably shoots .45 Apple Cartridge, Proprietary.

Held in Silicon Valley California, and the qualifying patch is made out of hemp? :P

The Apple 1911 is really just a Mac 7+1…

And today, Griffin Technology announced a new line of holsters, cases, and cheaper magazines.

The Annoyed Man April 25, 2010 at 12:58 pm

…plus, I hear that, starting May 1st, you’ll be able to download ammo from iTunes. :D

Admin (Mike) April 25, 2010 at 12:59 pm

99 cents per round? And you can only shoot at targets authorized by apple?

Reply

Antibubba April 25, 2010 at 10:58 pm

It would never sell, because it’s impossible to upgrade any hardware in an Apple, and it’s impossible NOT to upgrade the hardware in a 1911 (leaving it stock will send the shooter into convulsions).

If Apple really made this the grip screws would be Tri-Wing screws that you’d need a special screw driver to remove.

I’m headed to the Apple Store right now! Hope they offer it in the iCommander size!

I guess the intended market is for poor folks like this guy.

I just looked up the video on youtube. That’s brutal!

I’m not gonna lie, I would actually really like this being an Apple Fan myself. Just the logo in the trigger and the slide and the color scheme is really appealing to me. I like that clean subtle look.
