How Does It Work?

I recently was shown two animations of how two popular handguns work. You can adjust the controls to make parts disappear or split so you can see the functions clearly. Pretty darned cool!

Those animations are the balls, no doubt about it. I have always visualize, in my mind, just what I believe is happening during the functioning of the 1911 but to see it animated in such fabulous detail is amazing. Having the opportunity to have the animation function in so many levels is great.

Thanks for sharing X, now I can see it functioning in my mind ever so much clearer than before. It's high time to get out there and put my Gold Cup and re-tuned 1911 through their paces.

They're really good. Shame that the animator didn't show the slides starting top recoil b4 the bullet emerged.
