    What do you believe is the best hammer hook height? I went from .020 to .018 and like it. Would you consider .018 to be the lowest, but still safe? Thoughts?

    With exactly 6237 rounds downrange, I think I’m done messing with the DW 9mm Guardian I picked up last May. In that time I have only had 2 malfunctions which I believe was due to limp wristing while playing with a 13lb. recoil spring. I trust this gat 100% and it rides behind my hip in a Milt...

    Do any of you shape and polish your sear spring tips? If so, what do you do and what are the results? Pics?

    What is a tuned magazine and why does it sound like BS?

    I never understood the need for them. I hand-over using the rear serrations with all semi-auto pistols. Plus, I think 1911's look better without them. How y'all feel about them?

    So there is a thread on 1911 books. But how about DVD's? Is there any quality DVD's out there that show you how to fit a thumb safety, fit a firing pin stop, fit/tune an extractor etc.??? It would be nice to find a DVD that covers it all. Thoughts?

    What 9mm lightweight semi-custom commander options are out there? Seems NH, Wilson and others aren't using aluminum frames; or am I not seeing them? How about with bobtail or possible officer frame? Or am I going to have to go full custom to upgrade from the DW Guardian?

    Curious to what you guys think about how many rounds an aluminum frame 9mm 1911 can survive. Standard loads with good maintenance and spring replacements. I can put 20k rounds on my Glocks in year. Can my DW Guardian survive? Anyone have high round counts on lightweight commander frames?

    I finally added a 1911 to the stable after years without one. Glad to be back! :cool2:
