I got my hands on a pretty obscure 1911 variant - a Mexican Obregon. Unlike the Browning, it uses a rotating barrel system to lock, as well as having a few other features not found on the standard 1911. I put together a video on it, both disassembly and some range time:

Thanks for the video! I must ask though, why a rotating barrel? Was that part of simplifying manufacture?
