At least ALL new springs on a used purchase.
I remember the first time I took down a 1911 completely. Youtube videos to the rescue. It was actually pretty easy.
After you get over the Fear of Launching the Slide Spring Assembly to China or Other Part’s Unknown !! the first couple Times.
Nah, mine was Commander sized so the shorter recoil spring was captured on the guide rod with my custom made bent paper clip tool.
@Bill2728 I purchased a used Volquartsen Scorpion on Gunbroker with a thick nasty hardened green grease throughout all the internals of the firearm. I ended up taking the entire firearm apart thinking there’s got to be a video to reassemble…well, there was not but I found a reassembly video for a Ruger Mark III which was close enough. I felt better knowing I got to every nook and cranny inside that thing.
I am finding out that the more that WE tinker and the longer we seek out the M*CARBO BROTHERHOOD, the least likely we will need YOUTUBE and the more likely M*CARBO will flourish as a group @ChrisNelson
Anyone else find themselves find themselves tinkering with their guns? I was doing a deep clean on my Taurus PT111 and noticed the trigger was pretty gritty and would catch every once and while. Next thing I know I have the whole gun torn apart and am polishing the whole trigger set up. Now it’s butter smooth.
1911’s are nice guns, but I have always wanted a Browning Hi-Power. The CZ-75 is probably as close as I’ll ever get, I plan on getting one next year. I’d even settle for the FEG or TISAS clone of a Hi-Power.
@lonewolf Well said! Boy Again I’m Way Late on this Post I’m sure I’ll End Up with the Written Memo From the Management. But you are Right On! There is a’lot of good People and Knowledge here that takes Hours of B.S. on U Tube and Dodging the AD’S.
