M-1911 Disassembly, Reassembly and Fire Cycle Animations

A question we receive very often is "How do I take my pistol apart?" or "I took my 1911 apart, but for the name of God, how do I put everything back together?". In order to help our visitors with this problem, we have the following animations, which will guide you step-by-step in the disassembly and reassembly procedure.

I would like to thank Sterling Roth, for allowing M1911.ORG to use these animations and thanks to our Forums member Tom for reversing the reassembly animations to come up with the disassembly ones.
