1911Addicts -The Premiere 1911 Forum For Enthusiasts
I just got off my favorite thread, "What is Your Favorite Lube?"
Well , I've probably bought every snake oil out there and really don't remember one that did a bad job.
So, instead of asking what lube you like best, tell me which ones suck in your opinion.
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).
