    I'd have to clean my bi-focals with that many parts!

    Wow! To me that looks like a lot of parts, but I don't have a 1911 yet!

    Hate to disagree but, that is exactly why I dislike the 1911 platform. Too many parts that can break, get lose or just otherwise fail just when I need them to all work.

    I'll stick with my Glocks and XD's thanks.

    Now that you mention it, that is one reason I like my Taurus PT145 Millennium. It breaks down easily and reassembles quickly!

    You sissies....It only takes like 3 minutes to take that all apart and maybe 5 min to put it all back together, and it's super easy, and I'm sure I'm slow.

    Interesting, again, I don't own one yet.
    How reliable were 1911's in wartime? I'd imagine that they were kept as clean as they could be, but I bet they were still dirty. Any jams, breakdowns, etc?

    I'd venture a guess that for the last 100 years or so, the 1911 platform has far outperformed any other handgun. Anything can jam or break down, but the history behind the 1911 is simply awesome.

    That's also not field stripping like one would usually do to clean the 1911. That is a full disassembly. When disassembled for a standard cleaning a 1911 has only a few more parts than a Glock.

    This is what the 1911 looks like field stripped.


    A Glock looks like this.


    Just so everyone will know what one looks like here is a Glock fully disassembled like the 1911 in the first post.

    Thanks for the clarification. I guess I just thought everyone knew that already.

    IIRC...the Glock has 34 parts....?
    Not sure for the 1911.....but it's my understanding that the "original" 1911 was designed to be disassembled/reassembled with only a spent .45 casing as a tool.....
    History buffs.....is this fact --- or just "urban legend"????

    I am not a 1911 person nor a history buff, however I was indoctrinated on several occasions by my ex who is a 1911 lover and owner, that among the many reasons for his love of the 1911 is the fact that it can be taken down without any tools of any kind.... that any tools required in take-down are provided by the parts already taken down themselves.

    I did a full teardown of my Para Saturday while watching basketball. I love to do that as well.
