There were about 2.7 million military 1911A1s made during it's service life (by Colt, Ithaca, Remington, etc) and likely several million civilian versions.
John Browning. He designed and built the first 1911s. Although John Browning designed the first 1911 hand gun, Colt actually built and sold the first ones. The year it was built for sale was in 1911, thus the model number as well. Colt still uses the number m1911.
