How well did the iconic 1911 pistol do in trench warfare?
Ian cakes on the mud to see just how well a 1911 pistol can run.
Ian is best known for his online show Forgotten Weapons. He stays busy, though, so he also has a show called InRange TV.
Weapons used in the trenches had to battle lots of mud. With heavy mud fouling inside and outside firearms had a rough time staying in function. How did the iconic 1911 pistol do with heavy mud? Well Ian uses a Ballester Molina 1911 style pistol to try out an experiment with mud and pistol.
