I use white and gray Scotch-Brite with a tiny bit of oil. Very light pressure, rubbing in one direction only. Good thing to do while watching an epic defensive struggle football game. Small...

I think the rotational moment of inertia is higher for the SWC than for the RN, if both are lead. I didn't do the integration but based on cross section it looks that way. So SWC is more stable...

SWC vs RN aerodynamics

From reading this forum and others it seems the preponderance of experience is the SWC are more accurate than RN for same bullet weight. 1911 rounds are subsonic. SWC in general have lower BC than...

I've loaded 1000's of 45 ACP0 with CCI primers. I can't recall ever having a primer problem. I know people who won't touch 'em, but that isn't my experience.

Rolling trigger break versus crisp break

How does mainspring (or recoil spring) force effect trigger pull? I thought properly polished sear and hammer plus the correct geometry were what mattered. Will a lighter mainspring allow the sear to...

.22 LR conversion

Looking experience and recommendations on .22 LR conversion for 1911. Kimber makes one that sounds like it might be pretty close the original M1911.

I didn't see any evidence of galling. My guess is that the Amory Kote broke down, and sort of balled up, resulting in jamming in the groove in the slide. Now everything is nicely lapped, so no more...

I feel nothing when manually lowering the hammer, so there should be adequate over travel. Is there such a thing as too much over travel?
