replacing parts (1911) by yourself

764 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  vega

would replacing certain parts of your pistol by yourself post any problems?
for example: replacing the mainspring housing, changing the firing pin and its spring, changing the sear spring, etc.
what parts/items should only be installed or replaced by a competent gunsmith?

thank you

always wear eye protection when working on your pistol. all those springs become dangerous projectiles!

i'd let a smith install the firing mechanism. hammer, sear, discon, grip and thumb safety. too easy to mess up your perfect trigger job and damage your thumb safety if you're not mechanically inclined.

but once you get the hang of it, its easy to install all by yourself. download ka schematic diagram for reference.

good luck and don't shoot yourself in the foot or someplace worse if you install the parts the wrong way! peace! :clown:
