ulflyer said:Whether one wants to remove the safety stuff or not, the large clear pics and write-ups are great for those of us who might want to take our 1911 apart for thorough cleaning and inspection, and especially for those of us who come back later and can't remember where the little parts should go, or order that they should go in. I'm gonna print a copy of it and put it in my workshop.
Thanks a bunch Scott.
Thanks for putting this together. It's awesome. About time someone did it.
Hey do you have a hole at the bottom of the slide where the plunger used to be or is there a filler for that to? Great write up!
In my opinion, if you remove the firing pin safety on your Series 80 Colt 1911, you are simply returning it to a pre-Series 80 configuration, with the following exceptions:
- A hole is left behind in the slide where the firing pin plunger was.
- A slot will be left behind in the frame where the lever was, even after installing the gap-filling shim.
