Hickok45 is a pretty interesting guy, imo. He's fond of the 1911, even most of the clones.
A friend of mine turned me on to his videos three years ago. He's got vids on just about anything that goes bang.
I like his Garand-thumb video too.

when did the A1 incorporate the ejection port modifications and the flat sided hammer? Were they WW2 mods or post war mods?

Default 1911s vs A1s

Iíve been wondering how many 1911s are in the inventory that will be available or were all 1911s coming from the Army modified to A1s at some point after the mid 1920s during their service life? I carried an A1 in the service and donít recall seeing or having an original 1911. That was in the early 80s though.

To modify the 1911 to a m1911a1, the frame would have to be modified. I doubt they did that at all. My son has a 1911 frame made in 1918, it has a USGI 1950s vintage replacement slide, a USGI 1985 replacement barrel, and late WWII USGI components like arched mainspring housing, longer grip safety, etc but, it is still a 1911 cause of the frame.

I have a reworked USGI Colt 1918 vintage M1911 that shipped from the Letterkenny Army Depot in 1967 or 1968 to a private citizen that bought it back when they last sold them. It has a serial number that is very close to that of my Son's and probably made the same week back in Sept. of 1918. 100 Years ago and still goin strong
