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.

It may surprise some to find that Hickock 45 and I share the same last name.
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
