    While looking at a Mil Spec, I got weak and bought a used, unfired SA Trophy Match, good cosmetically, near new mechanically, for $800 OTD.
    I'm picking it up tomorrow.
    Still probably getting the Mil Spec too.
    The 1911 voices continue to call me. I don't want more of these - I just can't help it.
     

    Wanna kill these ads? We can help!

    Is it really hard to work on a 1911 or is it pretty easy once you get the hang of it? I really wanna tinker with my RIA but scared to. I like to start off with changing out the Ambi safety for a single sided safety.

    It's not difficult to replace most small parts, but expect, at some point, to need two when you over-fit the first one. :crying:

    Did you get a copy of the Kuhnhausen manuals that Polizei was sharing? They aren't perfect but they can help a lot.

    Just curious but where did you get "unfired"?

    The auction description just says:

    that's way older than mine. no FCS, they swapped the mag release, thumb safety, MSH, slide stop, grips and grip screws.

    hard to believe that it's un-fired.
