I know 1911s need some oiling and parts replaced here and there. Is there any link that has the suggested guidelines to follow? I change my oil in my car every 2,500 miles. Timing belt/water pump every 90k. Is there any guide out there that tells you how often you need to change springs, replace mags, oil the gun and things of that nature? How long can a 1911 sit on a nightstand without being fired before you should oil it again, to keep it running smooth. Thanks guys. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
