problem with those 1911's was in order to cock it you had to have your hand on the bbl. when the bbl was pushed back out, the bolt would stay back sometimes. if for any reason the bolt flew forward, it would jiggle the sear and the hammer would fall....with your hand on the loaded bbl....boom!
1. the bead would cut your palm as it recoiled and cycled.
2. your hand would end up in front of the muzzle if it slipped off and youd blow it off.
3. people didnt take the chance so theyd cock the gun in the ground and fill the bore with dirt and blow the bbl off anyway.
4. for those that couldnt pull the bbl back, theyd put the butt on the ground to keep dirt out of the bbl and push the bbl down with the loaded gun pointing at under their chins. it killed a lot of shooters.

it was deemed the widow maker.


this was all because browning held the pat on the bolt handle assy. winchester could not use one on its gun until the pat expired around pre ww2. winchester finally made a gun with a bolt handle and immediatley made another mistake...the model 40. it was dropped when ww2 broke out.

it wasnt until 1954 that winchester finally got it right with the model 50, which was a total success...over 190,000 are still used across america today.

They were not at all popular and did not sell. It was a very poor copy of an A-5 Browning. The market decided it was a poor design. Anyone who knew shotguns bought an A-5 Browning not a Mdl. 11 Winchester.

I don't see how it is that big of a deal to cock it...if you have that much trouble you don't need to be shooting a gun...It's not that difficult besides that is a nice gun and it is more valuable than the model 11s
