  Pistol - LoveToKnow 1911
Pistols with metal hafts were common in the 16th and 17th centuries, many beautiful specimens of which, silver-mounted, were made in Edinburgh and used by Highlanders.
Automatic pistols are so constructed that the force of the recoil is utilized to open the breech, extract the empty case, cock the pistol, reload the chamber with the top cartridge from the magazine, and close the breech, leaving the pistol ready to fire on again pressing the trigger.
As automatic pistols, like revolvers, are intended for personal defence at short range and for sudden use in emergencies, simplicity of mechanism and certainty of action are in their case of paramount importance.

 The Booth Deringer--Genuine Artifact or Replica?, by Schehl and Rosati (Forensic Science Communications, January 2001)
Curatorial records of the Booth pistol were unable to resolve the issue of authenticity, and the FBI Laboratory was subsequently assigned to determine beyond a reasonable doubt whether the Deringer pistol displayed at Ford's Theatre is the same pistol pictured in historical photographs pre-dating the 1960s.
Although the Deringer pistol was somewhat limited by its single-shot capacity, its light weight and small size gave it a distinct advantage over bulkier, unconcealable alternatives, and the limitations of its firing capacity could be circumvented by carrying two pistols, which were sold as pairs for approximately $22 to $25 during that time period.
The Deringer pistol's ubiquity, success, and infamy as a deadly weapon is apparent in its association with a number of prominent California murders that took place during the 1850s, as well as its later use in the assassination of President Lincoln.

The slides of the two pistols are also different, with that of the Glock 37 being wider, higher, and heavier than its Glock 22 counterpart.

To fieldstrip the XD pistol (bottom) the slide must first be locked to the rear to rotate the disassembly lever, and this automatically ejects a round from the chamber, a great safety feature.
