In every pistol I've ever built, the last thing I have to do when fitting up the major components is blend the back of the frame and the slide together. There are simply too many places tolerances...

If there is a lot of over travel, it may be simply that he's not allowing his finger to move far enough forward to allow the trigger to reset. I've seen this happen several...

You don't say what pistol you have, or what ammo you're using, so this is only my general observation... Whenever I've seen this problem, it's been competitors who loaded their ammo extra-long in an...

You will also need a box. I prefer the plastic ones with dividers and a clear hinged lid. I call it the hwhw box. That stands for 'Here's What Happens When', and it's used to hold the parts you've...

Sorry guys, I thought this was an original gun, if not new, then at least stock. In this situation, a mismatch is almost a given.

I would certainly defer to Bob Brown or George Smith. They both have forgotten more about 1911's than I will probably ever know. But, with that said, this is what I think of the situation:

Well, hard to say. But the plastic is pretty hard, and if the trigger track is smooth, I'd think it would last indefinitely. The one I did that way showed no appreciable wear when I finally...

I have to disagree. Done correctly, triggers with pulls of 3.5 lbs, and indeed, even significantly less, can be safe, reliable, and extremely long lasting.

Done incorrectly, triggers can fail...
