    Does Colt use forgings in their frames and slides?
    Especially the 1991s, 1911, etc.
    My Mark IV .380 appears to be a casting.

    Does anyone know what Norinco uses?

    I believe that Norinco used forgings. Now if I can only find that old copy of Gun Tests with the Norinco 1911A1 vs Colt 1991 test......
