Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

We were training at a shoot house before we went to Iraq in 04 and this contractor who taught the class went around the room looking at everyone's weapons. The next thing he said was, guys, you don't need all those optics and crap hanging off those weapons. The guy gave us some background before he started the class and if its true he has the right to pass out advice. None the less, flashlights and lasers and all that crap, they work both ways but if I was gonna have to have something I would go with a laser of some sort.

when it comes to 1911's, less is more. they don't need or deserve gadgets, as they are perfect just the way John Browning designed them!

Good sights, Good trigger, Good mags.

All that is needed for a top performing 1911.

Having a good understanding of how things work together in a 1911 is crucial. There are no secrets about working on one, only mysteries.

Thats one of the great things about a 1911, you can treat it as a blank slate and add your own personal touches. Everything on a 1911 is changeable, and they are fun to play with

Refer to my initial post. If JMB did not design it, it does not need it.

Really, if your itching to modify a gun then go get a mil spec AR15.

It is the Barbie Dream House for dudes!

Or get a Glock...you could dura coat that sucker pink and no one would laugh at you.

Unless there is something wrong with the internals, just shoot it and enjoy it like it is! Odds are that you won't be able to tell any difference if you replaced all of the internals.

If you wanna LEGO gun that you can constantly change out parts and pieces for, save up and get an AR-15. 1911s are meant to be shot, and shot often!
