Got my hands on an old WW2 era hi-power

I'm guessing these guns are a lot like 1911s. Any do and don't? Should it be treated and operating similarly to 1911?

When reassembling the pistol be sure to install the recoil spring guide properly! Or else you will have big troubles. Just search for jammed slide.
