Who is your manufacturer?

These guys are spot on when it comes to all things 1911. Notice Colt was 1st with with SA 2nd. No real mention of anything else. HaHaHa!! Highly recommended reading.

So the grip safety on my Defender had a squeak. Nothing major, but it's my shiny new Colt and I can't have it squeaking. I had never taken a pistol down beyond a basic field strip. Also, I like to take things apart to figure out how they work. This horrible combination lead to a very nerve racking few hours.

Taking all of the little parts out of a gun is much easier than putting all of those parts back in again. And no, having successfully change a set of grips once and ready access to You Tube does not in fact make me a gunsmith.

I did manage to get everything back together, fixed the squeak, and now know way more about 1911 internals than I did four hours ago, but that was not one of my brighter moments.
