Default I知 not clear on what makes a 1911, a 1911.

I’m not clear on what makes a 1911, a 1911.

I found some neat cutaway animations on Genitron that show an S&W Model 66 revolver, a Glock 23 and a Beretta 92 in operation. But they don’t have a 1911 up. Does the 1911 operate the same way as the Beretta? Is the difference that the trigger slides on a track (as far as I can see) instead of pivoting?

I’m perceiving all the 1911s operate the same way and that the differences are in the price/performance/quality ratios and ‘small’ things like sights, grip checkering, and stuff. Or am I mistaken and there are internal operational differences as well?

Does anyone know of a link to 1911 operating diagrams? All my searches get are pictures of 1911s.

Below, links to the animations mentioned above:

Genitron.com: Basics-Interactive Illustrated Revolver

Genitron.com: Basics-Interactive Illustrated Glock Pistol

Genitron.com: Basics-Interactive Illustrated Beretta Pistol

Edited to add: Never mind; I found this on You Tube,

That's excellent NOVA, thanks for posting it. Jerry Kunhausen the author of that article is one of the masters of the mechanics of 1911's. He's written a number of books and manuals. His manuals are in high demand.

Agree 100%. I have his manuals on the 1911 and the Mauser Bolt Action rifles would not be without either one.
