This is a very good cut away photo of the Colt M1911A1.  This Cut-away 1911A1 photo shows how the ammunition feeds from the magazine into the chamber.  The photo clearly shows the GI-style (not full length) guide ride and spring.  It shows the leaf spring for the grip safety, but does not show the mainspring.
