"The slide pushes the barrel back (to) allow the cartridge to slide easily into the barrel"

 

*facepalm*

 

It is a very well made animation. But whoever wrote the narration really should do more research.

So how would you have phrased it?

"The barrel tilts down to disengage its locking lugs from the slide."

 

It is the only reason why the barrel tilts down. Pistol designs that do not use a Browning tilting barrel locking system feed just fine without it.

I see what you mean now.  Yea, the feed ramp is what allows the round to slide easily into the breach.

Really demonstrates why it's important to clean and maintain the thing. That's my default pistol for Battlefield.

You ever owned or shot the real thing?

Not a hand gun, no. Hand guns are few and far between in Canada, although I suppose I could go to a range.

The second pistol I ever owned was a Colt 1911 Commander model.  Just a tad bit shorter barrel than the standard model.  It was a blast throwing that 45 caliber hunk downrange.

How is the feel and performance compared to a baretta M92F.

 

I fired one of those, but not a 1911.

I don't think I've ever fired a M92F.  I've seen and held them but never fired so I couldn't tell you.

Great animation, do you know if there is one in spanish? In order to get my license I need to know all the spanish words for the parts.

You could just try the semi-racist route and just stick "el" in front of everything.

And also end random words in "o", that would be a lot of fun.

 

"El pumpo action shotguno."

 

I'll try. If I don't comment or post in the near future the facilities don't give the patients internet accesso.....
