Personal Note #33 – Trying to understand how the Colt 1911 pistol works - on the 1911 pistol the disconnector’s engagement with the hammer is what holds the hammer in the cocked position. I believe that this statement is correct. Is this statement correct? Personal Note #34 - Trying to understand on the 1911 pistol what stops the disconnector’s upward travel when the slide returns to battery after the pistol is fired and the trigger is still being held to the rear. I believe that it is the slide but it could be the sear tail, or the trigger bow. Am I correct? Thanks.
