This slow-motion video of a Wilson Combat 1911 firing is incredibly awesome. They say a picture is worth a thousand words but video brings it to another level in astonishment.
Larry Vicker gives us an inside look at the 1911. Special thanks to Wilson Combat and their gunsmiths who made this cut-away 1911 specifically for this video.
So much happens in the blink of an eye at the moment one fires a handgun. Vicker’s Tactical shot some incredible footage of a 1911 Wilson Combat firing at around 6900 frames per second. (estimated)
Seems like we’re all fascinated with watching things that are fast go in slow motion. Guess its all about the appreciation and the beauty of it all, check it out.
Very cool handgun video, amazed to see the bullet actually leaving the gun and everything else you can’t see when you fire a gun with the naked eye. Or as another viewer puts it “the blow by at ignition before the bullet leaves the barrel. The shock wave behind the base of the bullet on exit. And the particles of un-burnt propellant after everything else has cleared the chamber”.
