    For you Taurus pt1911 owners the firing pin safety adds 2 extra pawls/washers to the mix in the frame make sure you take note of their location when you detail strip the frames, it does add some dificulty.

    AgeOfExploration on YouTube makes a lot of great tutorial videos for the Armscor/RIA 1911s. He actually made me a specific video just the other day! Everything from assem./disassem. to lessons in manufacturer history :D

    Another great resource I have found is in the Apple App store. Search Gun Disassembly 2. Several different guns are included, and it is all user interactive. May be in other App stores as well.

    Figure this might help. This idea comes from log man(who modifies EMP mags for flush bottom). This mod removes a chunk from slide stop lever so that it does not hit the plunger on re-installation. This helps to prevent "idiot marks".

    Allowed my son to use my 1911 Loaded stainless and when I got it back there was an "idiot mark" scratch on the frame at the slide lock. Can this scratch be buffed out w/very fine polishing rouge and a dremel w/a cotton buffing wheel? Am just asking for trouble? Any recommendations?
