    Detail stripped my 1911 for the first time last evening

    Well I finally worked up the nerve to completly dissasemble my Springer 1911. It is amazingly simple to do, it took me less than 10 minutes to get the pistol apart and a little less than an hour to reassemble. Of all the times I have looked at the diagrams and thought about doing a detail strip, I never really understood the relationship between the Disconnector, Sear and Sear Spring. My hammer hooks looked very clean and sharp. I would like to learn more about how to fit the pieces togather with the intent of one day building my own pistol from a frame and parts kit. My one question is, do the Hammer and Sear pins ussually come out of the frame with only finger pressure?

    Yes, sometimes they might stick a little, but thats is what they are supposed to do. The 1911 is a great, easy gun to tinker with.

    On most 1911 yes, you get into the higher dollar pistol and they usually have a better fit.

    Here's a good place to start learning about the 1911 platform.

    All back together again and no little pieces left over?
    Congrats.
    Absolutely you should try building your own pistol some day.
    Doing it is Much Easier than it used to be because the aftermarket parts are such high quality and held to extremely tight tolerances.

    I was kinda proud of myself..... no left over parts and everything worked like it is supposed to. I just got some replacement grip screws from Brownells.

    I bought this gun last spring from a guy who had installed a full length guide rod and a set of bulky rubber finger groove grips. The first thing I did was replace the grips and order a standard guide rod and recoil spring and barrel bushing. Then I bought a set of smooth cocabola grips, but 2 of the grip screws were a little chewed up from someone not using the correct screw driver.

    It is all good to go now. Well maybe it needs a Commander style ring hammer and a grip safety and a fresh blue finish.

    Ah...... the joys of 1911 addiction

    Good job. Now to get it down so you can do it blindfolded. I can't if you wondered.
