I could sure use some help...
I'm going to replace the arched mainspring housing in my SA mil-spec with a flat one. I've never done anything like this and was wondering if anyone could give me some step by step instructions to follow, or maybe even a pic or two? I know how to get the old one out becasue the gun's manual give directions and I'm assuming I'll have to take some parts out of the old one to put in the new one? I haven't looked in there yet but thought I'd ask the 1911 guys for some advice on this.
I'm also wondering how hard it is to install a different handgrip safety and hammer? Is there good book you can recommend that details this on the 1911?
I love my SA mil-spec but with my hands, I think I'll get a better grip with the flat MSH and with extra slim grips.
Also, if you were going to pay someone to work on the gun, what is the number one thing you'd have done for improving accuracy on the Mil-spec? I'm going to do a few things to this gun over the next year including checkering of the front strap and better sights. Aother than that, I only want to do one or two things that'll make the biggest difference in accuracy. And I guess after the checkering I'll need to get the gun refinished too.
Thanks in advance for the help!
