Springfield Loaded Rebuild

Discussion in '1911 Forums' started by Line Rider, Jan 28, 2012.

  1. I'm thinking about changing out several items on my Springfield Loaded. Before I do I would like to hear from some of you who have rebuilt a few 1911s. This is going to be and defensive / carry gun.

    Replace the factory: disconnector, firing pin stop, slide release, sear spring ,hammer and sear. Replace it with a Cylinder and Slide Series 70 Enchancement kit.

    Replace factory trigger with C & S long trigger.

    Replace the factory MSH w/ ILS and hammer strut with a Smith and Alexander Mag guide and an Ed Brown hammer strut.

    Replace factory ambi safety w/ EB tactical safety

    Finally have the gun Mil Spec Parkerized

    If you can think of anything else I need to replace let me know.

    Just out of curiosity why all the replacements? God knows I have dropped a few dollars on 1911 parts in the past as well :) I am just wondering what you thought process is on this? You could buy a 1911 for the money you will spend on those parts :)
  4. I'd like a custom built gun, but I can't a afford 2k + on a custom gun. I don't have a too much in this SA. With the new parts from Brownell's, I'm still about $700.00.
