The only reason I come to the Gunsmith Talk is to envy everyones knowledge. I want some of it! Not that I'm going to take on a project like a custom 1911 (yea, right!)I just want to see diagrams of making proper sear angles, setting trigger pulls, Fitting a barrel to a slide, fitting a beavertail. My last hobby was building and flying R/C airplanes. I had to build it before flying it. I have a hard time telling myself," Just clean it, just clean it" So I'm kind of a "tinkerer" when it comes to my guns. But as Clint Eastwood once said, "A man's got to know his limitations", and I know mine. And I know when not to touch anything. Hell, I live by this motto. EX: I bought a used .380 govt. model someone butchered trying to do a trigger job. I just replaced the sear and hammer, but they're not smooth. But I don't dare touch them, I know my limitations, and I want to expand them. I've yet to detail strip my XSE, but now that I've stripped my .380 and fitted a SM&A trigger,(and did a damn good job, I might add) I might be ready to take on a detail strip on the 1911. Can anyone recommend any good web sites that cover the 1911 tricks, or even a really good book? The book is a must have, even over the web site.
