Missing the recoil spring and barrel bushing? 1911 pistols are pretty simple design.

Should have said, that is the length of the barrel, gun is fully functional and is 9mm. The barrel is not .45acp sleeves for 9mm, it is proper 9mm barrel. My thoughts are that the barrel was this length to allow a sound moderator to be clamped on.

I tried to find a clamp on silencer online, but only found threaded. Not sure if you could
get a clamp on to stay on the barrel. Interesting pistol .... :D

Never seen one like that before, but i agree it might be for a silencer attachment of some kind.
