Default Bob Marvel Custom 1911 Classes

Deep River Customs, a maker of quality 1911 pistols, is proud to sponsor Bob Marvel, who will be teaching custom 1911 courses in Asheboro, NC, beginning in April 2015.

Bob Marvel is nationally and internationally acclaimed for his craftsmanship in building exceptionally reliable and accurate 1911 pistols. In the past thirty years he has built national championship and world championship winning pistols, as well as pistols for the military, law enforcement, and for civilian use. Bob is well known for a series of .22/1911 conversion designs, 1911 design improvements, and products for the 1911, as well as being a consultant in the firearms industry.

This will be a thorough, comprehensive 10 day course to teach the participants how to build a custom 1911 pistol using specific knowledge of each part. The requirement for the 10 day schedule is due to the amount of information, knowledge, and custom pistol building skills that are to be passed on to the students. Simply put, five days is not enough time.

The classes will involve supervised “hands-on” training, lectures, class discussion, trouble shooting, range time and reviews. At the end of the course, each student will walk away with a custom built 1911 pistol, knowledge of how the pistol works, and how to build and repair 1911 pistols from the training acquired in class.

Brief course overview:

Introduction and basic gunsmith hand tool use
Slide to frame fit including breech prep, extractor, firing pin stop, feeding relief
Barrel preparation and barrel/bushing fit
Action work – trigger, hammer, sear, disconnector
Frame work – grip safety, thumb safety, mainspring housing, ejector, plunger tube, magazine tuning
Sights
Range – test fire along with malfunction and troubleshooting instruction

That would be an excellent class by one of the masters of 1911's. I'm sure he will fill his class easy enough as there are lots of people interested in building there own 1911's as ALL other pistols pale in comparison.
