how much force does it take to drive a mainspring housing pin into your hand? damn...
Yeah that's what I was thinking
I have never detail stripped a 1911 and now I am quite afraid of it. It sounds like this was just an idiot being an idiot though?
They have an invention out. It's called a bench block. You can make one if you have a drill or can buy a simple one or a fancy one. :nod:
He was an idiot, I doubt you'd have a hard time with it
My Dad taught me how to do it when I was about 13. It's really not that hard
it would help to not have the hammer cocked when trying to drive the MSH pin out...
Wow,.........I've drilled into a finger, broke a finger when a wrench slipped,
stabbed my hand when a screw driver slipped, but I have NEVER driven a
part of a firearm into any part of my body.
There IS a first for everything!
Man are you sure you aren't Tim the Tool Man. :rofl2:
I gouged the side of my finger pretty good once with the trigger pin while detail stripping my G19 for the first time. Now I use a roll of duct or electrical tape as a bench block if a pin isn't co-operating.
When I first detail stripped a 1911 I used the thumb safety pin to push the MSH pin through. The two mated up well and it came right out. I've even read where the hammer strut was used. These methods were used in the field when no tools were available I believe.
25 years of working aircraft,.........stuff happens.
Just kidding. I have broken an arm, 8 stiches from a miter saw, hernia from lifting, drill bit in the leg [don't ask], eye doc twice to remove stuff, smashed fingers from hammers........... I know where you are coming from.
How many times have ya been lit on fire in one day?!
My personal best, or worst, is twice. :faint:
You're just clumsy
I beg to differ sir. I would call it being a man and not allowing anyone to out work me. I can't stand anybody doing that. Old school I guess. Can't do what I did as age has caught up with me and I hate it. I've hated jobs and still out did the rest of them as I said I wanted a job and did that job till I found another one. And Greg I've never set myself on fire but I don't weld. Would love to have fillmed that. Might have won 10,000 on AFHVs. LOL
Sounds familiar,...........old school to the bone!

As my good friend ( not really) Toby says......
" I aint as good as I once was..... but i'm as good once as I ever was..."
That's what I tell my wife everyday. She just laughs LOL
