American Tactical M1911
I got one in with a sheared off ejector (and it looked like it was peened where the casing hits it).
The gun had a little surface rust, terrible trigger pull, and a need of a lot of TLC.
I replaced ejector (had to drill on the front leg of the ejector), replaced all springs, stoned the trigger bow to remove high spots and smoothed the edges of the bow. I also cleaned and lubed the gun (it was dry).
I was thinking of stoning the sear, but didn't. The parts will have to be replaced to get the 4# trigger pull the owner wants. My concern is that the parts are surface hardened, and I don't want to compromise integrity.
Overall evaluation is that this could be a decent 1911. But as it comes from the box, I would replace all springs with a kit from Brownells (about $20) before shooting.
