Hmmm....with tight tolerances? Dirt wreaks havoc on those things...What made the M1911 so good was it was indestructible. You could bury in a pile of horse crap for a week, take it out, dust it off, and put a thousand rounds through it.
No tight tolerance in mine. It rattled like a babies rattle.Hmmm....with tight tolerances? Dirt wreaks havoc on those things...
Springs were known to corrode and fail...
The whole design is over complicated and antiquated IMO.
I don't own one, and doubt I ever will
That's all well and good, but the question was what was the best pistol during WWII.Well, sure, if you want a clapped out gun...it'll probably still run dirty.
I like John Browning just as much as any other gun lover, but the 1911 has run it's course IMO. The newer pistol designs are simpler and more reliable than the 1911 design. There's really nothing it does that a modern style polymer framed pistol can't do except MAYBE trigger pull and aesthetics. But honestly, trigger pull on a pistol isn't a huge concern for me. It's not a precision instrument, and I don't buy guns to look at them.
I didn't see the question...this whole 1911 discussion makes a lot more sense now.
I thought subsonic just hollered out '1911 FTW' for no damn reason...since he failed to quote anybody.
In that case, yes, during WWII, the 1911 was probably the best technically designed pistol available. Or the Browning High Power which takes a lot of it's features from the 1911...just originally designed for the 9mm
