Hickock45 on You Tube just posted a 15-minute video on the differences between the original Colt M1911 and the 1911A1 'upgraded' version introduced in the 1920's; using the guns to show them.

This is stuff that I expect many of y'all already know--- I'd be very surprised if Jim H. learned anything new--- but I did learn some things I hadn't known before about the differences between the two.

there were many design changes to the original gun intended to make the parts easier to machine and require less hand work.

Hi Jim I always pictured you as wearing a bowler hat and a monocle,. You and wild Bill are both named Jim. I was briefly give that "moniker" after drilling a silhouette target through the "noggin" at 75 feet with a .36 Navy, regards, Mike

I've never met him but considering he is from TN and my family came up through there I'd guess we are somehow related.

Seems like a nice guy and is indeed quite knowledgeable.

I'll try to look up his video on the 1911.

What is a bit surprising to some is that there is quite a bit of difference from the guns made in 1912 and the guns made in 1918 - but only in the parts not the basic gun.
