1 thought on “Throwback Thursday: 1911 Recoil Comparison”

  1. Nice video! What I thought was interesting was that, although the upward flip of the steel-framed pistol may not have been as high as that on the alloy frame, when the slide came back to battery, the front sights depressed below the target a bit further. The alloy gun had a bit more initial muzzle flip, but came back down out of recoil almost right on target. As you point out, the net result feels about the same. I know that I shoot my alloy Kimber and all-stainless S&W and Para all about the same.
