1911Addicts -The Premiere 1911 Forum For Enthusiasts
Just finished this one.
So I am looking to replace a few parts on my Delta Elite. Swapped out trigger and extended thumb safety with a little fitting. Came out well.
Coming to my ejector, I'm having issues. The pin is not moving easily or after a few taps. I know that if I attempt brute force then I'll likely damage something.
Would a bit of heat help?
Who are some gunsmiths that focus more on reliability rather than looks?
I have heard that John Jardine is a guy who doesn't care about how it looks (i.e. parkerizing rather than that beautiful bluing that so many do) but rather how it runs. I suspect Karl Sokol of Chestnut Mountain Sports is the same way (heard of him via Marcus Wynne).
So recently I posted a thread comparing my DW CCO to my G43...ran them head-to-head in some Bill Drills to help finalize an off-duty carry piece. I noticed that the front sight on my DW CCO was a bit dim and had no white outline. All my non-competition guns have 3 dot night sights with white outlines for consistency with my duty gun (competition guns all get red fiber optic front sights).
Something is going on at Colt that has its employees on the edge of their seats.
Rumors of massive layoffs have been going around since a post on Pistol-Forum read, “Sounds like a big mess down there a whole lot of pink slips, including my favorite division, the custom shop.”
It’s not yet known the extent of the layoffs, however, it has been confirmed that Brent Turchi, director of Colt Customer Service and the Colt Custom Shop, was let go recently.
