Magwells on a 1911

A speed reload is great for use in competitive shooting games.....I doubt they are needed for an EDC gun. What may help on a steel frame 1911 is to bevel the bottom edge of the frame at the magazine...

Bluing carbon steel gun parts.....

For small bluing touch ups, I like and use Birchwood Casey "Perma Blue paste." For touching up your hammer, a Q tip and a little Perma blue will take about 3 minutes or less. Leave the Perma blue...

Reloading an "explosive..."

Precautions should always be used when reloading, and IMHO, safety glasses or prescription glasses to correct vision is a good thing to use.

Bent recoil spring....????

I have never heard of a bent recoil spring, since they are pretty flexible. If your Ballester Molina is a .45acp, a 1911 5" 16lb. recoil spring will work.....if it is the recoil spring.....and not...

Hammer bite....(not really the hammer causing the issue)

From the pictures of you holding the gun, it is the standard edge of the grip safety causing the issue with the web of your hand. A beavertail grip safety would be a nice idea, however, you need...
