Now that looks like a happy couple.
Nice, very nice
Well at least the off-spring will have JMB genes.
I have a question about the Colt, since this is the 1911 forum and all. It seems like I over lube the slide rails, I see pics of others 1911s here and they are PERFECT clean. As you can see in that pic, there is a little gunk that shows through. I use a lubricant spray to lube up the slide, and I wipe it out pretty good while trying to leave some of the lube there. Will this harm the gun in any way? The only reason I ask is because everyone elses is so clean and perfect and mine has the visible lube collecting and showing. I know common sense would say no, it wont harm a thing, but I am just making sure. Any advice would be appreciated.
alittle extra lube never hurt anyone.
I believe that the 1911 should have been on top!
It doesn't take much lube if everything is correct. 1 drop per rail is all I use.
I never use oil on my rails. I want my lube in critical areas to stay where I put it. I use Shooters Choice or Wilson Combat grease. I apply it with a small thin watercolor brush and spread it very thin and evenly over the rails. Works great and does not run or dry up as lesser stuff does.
I rub my guns down with Rem-Oil wipes.
Some times i just rub my gun's to rub my gun's. but i just use a drop each rail i use hopp's
