As noted, the 1911 barrel link is essential to the function and reliability of the pistol. The barrel link is a small component that aids in the unlocking of the barrel from the slide after a discharge and prior to moving back into battery. If not functional, the barrel is unlikely to unlock and will, in addition to preventing extraction of a spent cartridge case, cause other problems.

So how does the 1911 barrel link work? The 1911 barrel link is a small part that can be found linking the rear portion of the barrel with the slide stop. While in battery, the barrel is locked with the slide. After each discharge, the barrel and slide, still locked, are forced rearward. After a very short distance, the link pivots and lowers the rear portion of the barrel, which serves to unlock it from the slide. Now unlocked, the barrel moves back in line with the slide, which provides for reliable extraction and the chambering of a new cartridge. This newly-manufactured part was manufactured to mil-spec 1911 specifications and features a black oxide finish. Note that several sizes of the 1911 barrel link exist. Ours is designed specifically for mil-spec pistols.  

Spare parts are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly, especially all components that impact the firing sequence. In general, if a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement becomes necessary immediately – not only to keep a firearm functioning properly but also to ensure the safety of yourself and those around you.

It is also important to consider availability. At this time, Keepshooting.com is seeking to provide our customers with a wide selection of replacement parts for the M1911 pistol. Several parts are now readily available on our website at an affordable price. If you have any need for spare parts, now would be a good time to take advantage of this offering.

Though the barrel link is not the most common part on the M1911 pistol to experience wear, keeping replacement parts of all sorts on hand is generally a good idea. Consider purchasing a replacement 1911 barrel link today.
