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.

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.
