    Im new to 1911s and need the best gunsmithing videos that are made. I need to learn how to build from the frame and slide up. I know wilson combat makes some. Which videos do yall recommend for me? I know very little about fitting. All I can do is take them apart and put them back together. thanks a lot.

    The only video that I have is the Wilson series. Its an older production, but still helpful.
    The Ed Brown video should work too.

    Hilton has details and recommended dvds on the 10-8performance.com website.

    The Wilson videos are very informative. They are the only ones I have experience with though
