How many people here take the time and make the effort of disassembling new (or just newly acquired) guns and inspecting the internal mechanisms? I think this is something everyone should do but I do not think the majority of gun owners take the time to do. I know it helps make you familiar with your weapon but it also makes you more appreciative of what you are getting with higher end guns. I remember disassembling a new Taurus PT1911 once after thinking "How do they offer so much so cheap?" (it was cheaper when it came out than it is now). After opening it up and looking inside I found myself saying..."Oh, that is how they do it."
