In 1893, the Norwegian Military moved ahead in the adoption from the Russian Nagant Model 1893 service revolver in 7.5mm quality since it's standard-problem pistol. Despite its designation, the revolver was created in the Nagant Model 1895, a no-extras, seven-shot service pistol with solid frame, checkered grips and enormous, oblong trigger loop. The weapon was chambered for that 7.62x38mmR cartridge and a few 2Thousand, 000 were created which permitted for this to see common service in numerous conflicts to follow along with.
Regardless of the adoption from the Model 1893 into Norwegian service, a commission was created to judge other guns visiting market. The commission eventually recommended the Colt Military Model 1902 before the U . s . States Military went ahead on implementing the Colt M1911. This high-profile move affected the Norwegians to check the M1911 for their needs and official adoption adopted in August of 1914 - the M1911 directly changing the outgoing Nagants. With Colt's European ties in Belgium (with the storied concern of Fabrique Nationale = FN), the pistol was handed local production privileges in Norwegian to become handled through the Kongsberg Vaapenfabrikk facility. The pistol was formally designated as "11.25 m/m AUT. PISTOL M/1914" and found be commonly referred to as "Kongsberg Colten" or "Kongsberg Colt" because of its host to manufacture.
