I need a 1911 tech guru
I recently swapped out the mainspring housing on my 1911 S&W… added an arch to make it more user friendly
finally got around to the range to do some more shooting a couple days ago and made an interesting discovery, well 2 actually.
my 10 round magazines have decided to not feed properly so now there are a couple shiny pieces of debris out in the corn field. … they were cheap when I got ‘em, so not a huge surprise or loss.
the significant discovery is that while the stock mags feed just fine, the first hammer drop after a mag swap has no earth shattering kaboom. After about 6 or 7 of those, I gathered up the rounds with scuffed primers and refilled a magazine. First round click, with all the rest feeding and firing perfectly.
I can’t see any reason for the hammer to have less force on the first drop than it does on all the others.
I’d like to thank all the people that stopped by to offer thoughts this last couple weeks. It’s much appreciated. I’ve had a rather long year and am thankful for all the wonderful people in my life that let me call them friends.
