I'm planning to build a .45 ACP snd have been reading various books on the 1911. Right now I'm more confused than usual, this time it's the issue of barrel linkdown. I have seen two different ideas about it:

1) In recoil, barrel rear/downward motion should be stopped by the vertical rear surface of the barrel underlug hitting a vertical surface on the frame.

2) In recoil, barrel rear/downward motion should be stopped by the lower rear part of the barrel hitting the barrel "bed" in the frame.

Seem to me that the first case would put a lot of strain on the underlug, but I'd appreciate thoughts from the gurus.

Thanks
