Thread: Maintenance of a 1911 pistol

  1. #31
    Hey, when you 'acquired' those weapons, were they more or less yours to keep? Were there places where you could shoot them for fun, or was everything considered "serious business". Even if it was, without practicing, how would people improve their shooting performance?

    I imagine your performance was more concerned with speed than accuracy, although both are needed. How much training did you get? ....feel free to start up a new discussion about this. Nobody will ever find it here unless they're looking for ways to take care of their 1911. ....and if you have photos of you with the weapons you liberated, please post those too!

    No it was strictly 'on the black' as we say - totally under the radar: the PPSh-41 would have got me 5 years in jail if it'd been discovered - sub-machine guns are a big no-no in Europe and for very good reason.
    guns are relatively easy to acquire here still despite most types being technically illegal in the UK: an AK-47 can be 'sourced' in London for about 500 - 1,000.
    Ammunition is another matter: ammo is incredibly difficult to find now and rounds for that AK would be around 50 per round ($75-ish) - if you could find someone willing to sell them to you in the first place and who wasn't also a police informer.

    Photos of me with illegal weapons, Mike? I'll pass on that one, thanks...lol

    Training was mostly confined to rifle shooting and apart from Infantry units - who train a lot more with weapons - is usually limited to one or two range sessions per year when doing the annual qualification tests. I was lucky to be in a tri-service Media Ops unit that had access to local ranges, so we went out there once a month or so to tear up some Figure-11's (man-sized tagets) -

    - and that was considered over the top by some of the bosses who still don't quite get the whole 'practice til you can do it in your sleep' training ethic that I learned in the Infantry.

    It seems to me that anyone in the armed forces should not only be proficient in the maintenance and use of their weapons, and in the case of personal weapons, should be able to disassemble and fix things while wearing blindfolds, and preferably one-handed. Should they ever be in a firefight, and their weapon jams, it might make the difference between living and dying.

    Photos.... OK, none of you walking around with a huge machine gun, but more photos of you overseas, armed with your photo gear, would be great!

    How a 1911 handgun works

    What I would like to find, is an illustrated article on exactly how the firing mechanism on a 1911 works. In other words, not only what the parts are, but what they do, and why they do it.

    I've found lots of videos on Youtube that show how all these parts move, but never have I found any written description of what they're doing.

    There's the finger that pulls the trigger. After a lot of little parts do their thing, the firing pin hits the primer in the bullet, and the gun fires - but what do all those little mechanical parts and springs do?

    The best video animation I've seen about this is:



    I wish the author had forgotten about the silly background music, and had someone explaining the function of the parts, so a newcomer would know "how" it works. As it is now, I'm sure all the experts know just what they're seeing, but I sure don't....

    (I'm asking about only a small part of this video, but if the entire video had an appropriate voice-track saying what the parts do, etc., it would all be better.)

    Sear spring

    Can Anyone tell me which leaf of the sear spring adjusts the trigger pull tension?

    Tom, I wish I knew enough about these things to be able to understand your question, let alone be able to answer it.

    I suspect that if you go to this page:
    ...and scroll down to "sear spring", you'll find what you're looking for.

    Hope this helps...
