    Mad props, St. JMB

    Last night was my first complete strip-down of my Springfield Mil Spec (complete as in could be sold as a kit). I have to say, my respect for Saint John Moses Browning has increased exponentially. To be able to design something as clever as this, from the way the mag release holds the trigger, the various contact points of the leaf spring, all of it, and to do so without the help of a CAD program or something similar is mind blowing. Then to make it his specs, consistently...

    Yeah, just felt like sharing. Mad props, St. Browning. Next time, though, if the thumb safety/slide stop spring and its two plungers want to fly off to who knows where, you're chasing them down.

    What, cops aren't familiar with the slang us youngin's use? "Mad props" is kinda like saying "Way to go," only not sarcastically. I really do have immense respect for what he managed to do, moreso now that I've torn it down. I was a tad peeved at the spring, but hey, my fault for doing it at night.

    JMB thought of that too. Tear down a Colt and you will find the plunger spring has a kink in the middle, it keeps the spring from shooting off into the wild blue. Put your own kink in the spring and it won't happen again.

    More common vernacular is "Fo rill", locally. Granted, the Ebonics might be different in Virginia.

    OD, that's a GREAT idea. Glad JMB thought of it but someone at Springfield thought it'd be funny to make me tear through the win racks to find it. Conspiracy, I tell you. Those little magnet wands from Home Depot work pretty well, by the way. Pulled up a couple staples.

    The 1911 is art in steel, a perfect example of form follows function.

    Such beauty, such class, such stopping power.

    Such a nice trigger pull. The best there is I think, just something about those 1911 triggers. And to heap more praise on St. John lets not forget everybodies favorite Ma Deuce.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
