    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.

    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.

    Not yet just hit him with a PM about it. Hmm thinking about trying it then switching out my Ambi safety for maybe one of these

    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.
