Side note on the 1911
I was informed recently (or not so recently, I've been busy) that I messed up a little on the 1911 breakdown.
Essentially; remove the thumb safety *first*. Alter your reassembly as required.
...or how I learned to love the odd pistol... CZs, Nagants, other combloc memorabilia with the look and build of a tractor axle that somehow shoot like dreams. *My* domain, the strange and beautiful mechanisms of handheld firearms long past. And don't forget the strange ideas, nightmarish creations that spring from my head and make everyone I work with thankful that I don't *yet* have a CNC machine...
