If one could take the pistol pictured in this post back in time 100 years and hand it to a U.S. soldier, it would still be recognized as the 1911 pistol. For all intents and purposes, semi-automatic pistol design solidified with the advent of this gun: all a variants in some fashion.That is why a 100 year old design can still look modern.
"An elegant weapon, for a more civilized age." - Obi-wan KenobiWords which apply equally to the 1911 as to the lightsaber, as far as I'm concerned.
