Though Max has certainly gained access to a thrilling new arsenal in Max Payne 3, there's nothing wrong with the classics, as evidenced by this trailer spotlighting the 1911 semi-automatic pistol. As seen in the trailer, this is Max's old workhorse of a gun from back in his police days, a time when he was still sporting a head of hair. Seemed to do a bloody good job back then, so it's nice to see it still in action today!
What do you think? Excited to play with Max's various weapons?

The Return of Max Payne
For Max Payne, the tragedies that took his loved ones years ago are wounds that refuse to heal.

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.
