Not to nitpick, throw stones, argue semantics yada yada, but the 1911 is far from a simplistic design. A Glock to AK and 1911 to AR comparison, IMHO, would be more accurate.
I think its pretty valid. The AK and the 1911 (in its original guise not the super accurate versions we have now) were both intended as reliable battle weapons.
Not all that accurate, but accurate enough and reliable in that they would take all he mud the blood the guts etc and keep firing.
a glock if you get that kind of good in the striker is going to quit working.
