I was looking at replacement barrels for a 1911, for a project 1911. I clicked on the wrong link and I found an instruction page for "How to Operate the slide on a 1911 Colt".

I don't think I have seen this 1911 variant. Maybe some of the other 1911 guys have... ;) :D

I just thought this was funny. I also found a 1911 related article with a revolver as the photo...

Probably someone (w/ no firearms experience) who didn't realize that when the military switched from the Colt 1911 to the Beretta 92 that it was actually a different pistol! :D

Wow. Some unintentionally entertaining stuff there:

How to Replace the Extractor for a Colt 1911 Pistol | eHow.com

Quote: "An extractor is the metal slide on the top of the frame that you pull back to chamber a bullet."

And it gets better (worse?)
I seriously have to say, what kind of 1911 is he working on? That's not even close to the procedure, it just makes no sense at all. Why would you pull the trigger to drop the hammer and "release" the firing pin when you still have to pull the slide back to get the slide lock pin out of the frame? I feel like someone played a cruel joke on someone else by putting that online.

To me it looked like a Beretta Cougar or PX4.

The funny people of ehow.com also posted this guide on how to identify a 1911 pistol. And, voila! showed what looks like a Beretta M92 or Taurus PT92 pistol.How to Identify a 1911A1 Pistol | eHow.com
I believe it's a Beretta, it appears that the safety is positioned on the slide and not the frame. Unless it's a very old PT-92, but somehow i doubt it is.

Note the position and placement of all parts that you remove, and also how you remove them. This will help with reassembly.

This guy is freakin' brilliant!!! I'd a never thought of that! Now I'm gonna go check out the 'charging handle' on my 1911.... :)

I actually like my PT-99 more than a 1911 simply becuase it is a DA/SA not a SA like the 1911.
