How God's Gun Works

John Browning, American genius:

How exactly does a 1911 work? To fully answer that question, one used to have to get a set of punches, a hammer, a set of gunsmithing screwdrivers, a parts list, a 1911 of course, and a couple of hours of time. However, animation takes this one step further, and Jacob O’Neal has created one of the most thorough pieces of gun-related informative animation I’ve yet seen.

There’s a clever animated gif at the link, showing you exactly how the best semi-automatic  handgun ever made works so efficiently.
