I am puzzled by the design of the 1911 "solid" (no space to rear) trigger. I had assumed the original Browning had it that way to make it less likely to become fowled in combat conditions. The modern 1911 seem to have odd looking cut-outs from this design, perhaps to reduce weight. Why not just a typical trigger with space on both sides?

very interesting -- are there sensitivity or reliability considerations that would cause one to prefer a slide trigger to a hinge trigger? Is the slide trigger used elsewhere than on the 1911 these days?
