A couple of samples, but you might consider it cheating; they are the products of some underwater firing, mud and dirt tests.

I am not a huge fan of tactical looking 1911s but those old green and black ,2 tone Wilsons are still some of my favorite looking pistols. I remember seeing them when they first came out years ago and was taken by them for some reason. I still like them just as much to this day. I would really like to hear more about your observations of the mud and water torture tests that you have put 1911s through and what qualities made noticeable differences in performance from gun to gun. Do you have any of this information published anywhere?

In the second 1911 book, as I recall.

Basically, I wasn't able to make any already reliable 1911 choke, due solely to mud, water, dirt, dust or sand.

This included buirying them, and then digging them up.

One would short-stroke if fired underwater, but not all, as the rest would cycle normally.
