View Full Version : Forged 1911
What would happen if a 1911 was stamped from forged steel like the AK's
I thought the 1911 was forged as opposed to a stamped sheet metal AK?
If it were stamped, then it would most likely be like some SIG P226's that as I recall had a stamped slide
Parts are just stamped but the metal used is first forged making it stronger and thats why stamped lasts longer than milled
I'm sorry sir but I don't understand your face
To the OP - Being that the 1911 has been around for well over a 100 years, the platform has pretty much reached it's engineering peak. I can't imagine after a century that there'd be any significant improvements that could affect the performance of the 1911. It all comes down to quality of materials and machining tolerances.

my feelings were more like :fie:
