Colt 1911 Style / Variant Pistol - Action & Tuning Clean-Up

Seems like everyone is making a 1911 pistol of some kind these days. Unless you buy a custom gun, you are most likely going to get something right off the assembly line. These guns should work and have most likely been tested for function and whatever criteria the factory has for quality. However it may not be as refined as if you bought it from a custom gun maker.

So in this video(s) I will show you a couple of very simple things you can do to your 1911 to clean it up and give it a more smoother action and perhaps a lighter trigger pull.

DISCLAIMER: By modifying your pistol from factory specs, you may be opening yourself up to some liability so please do it at your own risk. I do not take responsibility in your actions. This video is for informational purposes only and I assume no risk.
