Présentation de l'éditeur

This article provides a unique perspective on the Colt 1911 for both those who love it and those who can't stand another repetitious magazine blurb.

This a much improved and expanded Second Edition of "The Colt 1911 - A Mechanical Engineer's Perspective." Based on customer comments, the original 14 page text only article has been rewritten and expanded to more than 50 pages with pictures. An added Appendix includes recommended references, diagrams, and the text of the 1904 Thompson - La Garde Report.

Original comparison photographs of a 1913 vintage Colt 1911 and a modern Kimber 1911 are used to illustrate significant changes made to the Colt design. The author offers his professional judgment and person opinion on the "improvements" made in the last 100 years.

Have you ever wondered why the Colt 1911 has certain featues such as grip and thumb safeties, a wide hammer that sometimes "bites", the plunger tube and grip bushings, etc.?

How has the design survived for so long, even thrived in the world of competition shooting and self-defense?

How would the Glock 21 or the Beretta M9 have done in the pistol trials of 1910?

This work is the author's opinion based on experience and 50 years of reading and research on Colt 1911 pistols. It assumes the reader has some knowledge and experience with the 1911 handgun.

It is the author's conjecture regarding the process used by Government, John Browning, and Colt Firearms to develop the most significant semi-automatic pistol of the 20th Century and possibly the last pistol to be designed to kill men efficiently.

It is not a detailed "how to" for new 1911 shooters but will be of interest to those who want a unique perspective.

I've been a l911 .45 lover since Uncle Sam introduced it to me during the Korea war. I've still got one. Every time I fire it, I think I'm listening to the voice of God speaking to me.

I enjoyed this article. The author's perspective as an engineer gives him a unique insight into how the M1911 was developed. A short pleasant read.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 How Well Did the 1911 Meet the Army Requirements? 13 juillet 2014
Par Dan M. Beadle - Publié sur Amazon.com

Short overview, written by a mechanical engineer who loves 1911's. But it could have been written by a product manager. He compares the 1911 against the Army requirements from 1911 to show that it meets all the requirements. Then he compares it with modern guns and compares them against the same requirements. For example he compares Glocks. In most cases he thinks 1911's are superior or equal to the modern guns, with the one exception of capacity.

I think it is a pretty objective review. I have Glocks and a 1911. Both are nice, but 1911 meets the Army spec.

Not very technical. Nothing on how it works. More how well it meets sure needs. Don't be intimidated if you are not an engineer.

Some complaints about price. This is more of a pamphlet than a book. I found it enjoyable and worth the price. Wish I'd read it before buying the 1911, but I'd still have made the purchase

As a collector and serious fan of the 1911, I greatly enjoyed this book. The author writes without bias on not one but three of the best combat pistols on the market giving a uniquely written prospective. The guns are all put to the test of the original standards called out by the millitary when they tested the original 1911's. He also discusses why the 1911's where designed they way they were. While a bit short at 50 pages, it covors a lot of information. Remember most magazines barely have 80 pages, so your actually getting a lot. There is a lot to learn about these guns and I was able to pick up some information that I still didn't know, which makes the cost well worth it to me. His article would do well to be published in one of the many gun related magazines out there. I would certainly recommend this book.

I own both the earlier as well as this updated edition of this book. The updated version fills in some blanks and is a more thorough treatment of the 1911 and its history/ design. The 1911, as originally conceived, is directly compared and contrasted with two other firearms from a more modern time- the GLOCK 21 and the Beretta M9/ 92FS. The primary areas of concern are why the 1911 was built the way it was, what are it's strengths and weaknesses, and would it have still been adopted by the military back in 1911 if the GLOCK/ Beretta had been available alternatives?

If you are a fan of the 1911, as am I, it is a no-brainer to purchase this short book for the modest price offered here. Very interesting approach to a timeless firearm! Highly recommended.
