    Re: Putting a 1911 magazine spring back in the mag - which way does it go?

    Was hoping for a cool & wet winter. My 19 y o son was asking me a question at the range -- the hi point needs the heavy slide to absorb the energy that isn't otherwise imparted to the bullet itself due to the straight blowback design. However, given the same cartridge, a locked breach pistol transmits the exact same amt of energy to the bullet without a heavy slide to absorb the excess. So where does that energy go? I told him the slide still absorbs it along w your hand. Don't know if that's exactly true. Kind of interesting. After all my llama 45 thumps alot harder than the hi point
