    When I got my first 1911, the thought of disassembling and reassembling it was a bit intimidating. So, I decided to make this video, shot in a well lit interior studio type setting, with clear, close ups and explanations. Respectfully offered for your use and consideration and sharing with others.

    Thanks for the video. I'm sure it will be very useful to some. Having been felt ridiculed
    over the idiot scratch in the past. I never knew it was an unpardonable offence to have a mark on a fighting weapon, to some 1911 snobes, no one on this forum ofcource.

    Thanks, glad you liked it. It's being well received. I plan on doing a "Part II" demonstrating a full set of function tests.

    If everyone who owns a 1911 would watch this, there would be no such thing as an idiot scratch!

    Always, not sure about that, and frankly, I would not sweat the "idiot mark" too much...I mean, these things are meant to be used, not simply treated like museum pieces, if they are not that.

    There was a day I my feel that way, but not anymore. With the cheapest manufacturing, and imported costing more than Glocks, for example. Not to mention most of Kimber, and Colt offerings costing a grand, no, I don't want an idiot scratch, and they can, and should, be avoided. I shoot my 1911's, that's why I bought them. If I am buying a $1000 1911, it had better not have an idiot scratch, no matter the age. Of everyone who has a 1911 watched this video, again, there would be no idiot scratches!!!!

    Agreed. The only one I am careful with when putting back together is my TRP because I love it :supergrin: The rest of my 1911s--eh, I just get it in there.

    Thats a good idea. I learned a lot from them. My Kimber started to stove pipe. Yup. Went to the mags. Wasted some money before checking function of the extractor.

  14. Great video, thanks. I spent the whole time wondering if your fingernails were painful down to the quick like that.
