Hey all, I got a 1911 A1 GI with the intention of doing some work on it myself, I wanted to test it out to guage the actual difference after the trigger job etc. One thing I noticed was the rounds would catch, it seemed like the slid would lock up before cycling all the way, I took the gun apart (as I should have done before) and noticed it was quite dry. I gave it a good lube job and made sure the slide had minimal friction and "boom" she went with not problems. Also, the finish on the barrel on these things is about one step up from a dry erase marker, I want to polish up the barrel down to its stainless base. Any hints on the best way to do this so it doesn't look like a hack job?
