Has anyone around ever built their own 1911? Is it more cost effective to do it yourself than buy it already done? Is it difficult to do or difficult to find the parts? Any experiences would be welcomed.
The Springfield Armory GI 45 is a great base model to build from. I'm actualy gonna pick one up myself to build up.
Yes to the first question.Do this simple test...on an empty gun...no magazine;
Lock the slide back.....drop the slide using the slide stop.....does the hammer follow?
