1911 Back From Gunsmith..........

1216 7
Alright, I just got back from the gunsmith. This is a great guy who loves working on 1911's. His own carry piece is one that he custom built himself on a Caspian frame/slide.

He took my barrel, polished the crap out of the throat. A live round drops in and falls out now if you tip the barrel. He then looked at my extractor. There appeared to be a pretty obvious amount of brass marks on the extractor, so he took it and polished it a bit as well. There was nothing else that he could think of as causing the problems.

This coming weekend, I'm taking it to the rang along with 150 rounds of Blazer Brass ammo. If I have a single FTE, she's going to Springfield for Warranty work. That's all I can think of at the moment.

Looks good. Let us know. I also would suggest a couple different brands. Maybe a couple different bullet weights as well, just to check.
