Pretty interesting animated infographic.
How a Handgun Works: 1911 .45 - Animagraffs : Animagraffs
There is one out there that is animated assembly/disassembly that is great because parts have to go together in order.

It takes awhile to run after loading (using Internet Explorer 11), but it should work.. It's pretty cool too. :thumbup:
Bump/resurrect for a cool gun animation
in this animation under the 'ammunition' section it shows the slide separating instantly from the barrel and moving rearward then the barrel moving rearward before the bullet exits the barrel. Is this true for a 1911?
I thought the slide and the barrel maintained a lockup for a very short moment before separation allowing the bullet to exit the barrel before separating?
(still very cool infographic)
That's what I understand too. Not sure if they intended to accurately depict that portion. I do enjoy looking at stuff like this though.
what got me asking is they did so well on everything else I had to ask.
All the animations are well done, not complaining just wanted to make certain I understood the operation correctly.
This one seems to slow things down enough to show the delay from the time it fires until the slide starts moving back - starts around the 0:50 mark:
