Default 1911 Field Stripping for Dummies

When I got my first 1911, the thought of disassembling and reassembling it was a bit intimidating. So, I decided to make this video, shot in a well lit interior studio type setting, with clear, close ups and explanations. Respectfully offered for your use and consideration and sharing with others.

Good video as always. I'm sure it will come in handy for some of our new members.

I just read the owners manual, and tried my best to avoid the famed "idiot scratch", with great success! I try to learn from other's mistakes when and where I can.

I wish I had found a video like this before I started though.

I would have assumed you were capable of a complete tear down on a 1911.

I am now. But before I bought my own I had only handled them. Never fired or field stripped one before then.

A SAW is so much easier. It practically falls apart with my fingertips.
