I have not had a ND or anything, but today I took my Auto Ordnance 1911 apart to swap out the hammer. When I reassembled everything I placed the safety on to test it, and when I pulled the trigger the hammer dropped and the safety disengaged. I disassembled the gun, and what the issue seemed to be was the safety looks damaged. Could this be why the gun was able to fire with the safety on? I have since replaced the safety with another one which seems to have fixed the problem. My friend who works a lot on 1911's said that it happened because I dry fired it, or that I had actuated the safety too much. I have heard that it is safe to dry fire, and that is unsafe to dryfire. Could someone enlighten me on whether or not it is unsafe/safe to dry fire a 1911, or if it is safe/unsafe to actuate the safety. I might be wrong, but it sounds like hogwash to me...
