The Springfield 9mm 1911 is COMPLETE

So I took a plain jane and made it plainer :)

But better! Mostly accomplished with a belt sander, files, stones and GOOD QUALITY parts.

Thanks to friends Phillip and Jenny at my blended external parts are perfectly blasted.

A little lube and bit of spring tweaking and I have a great, basic 9mm 1911 that now runs 100%. More testfire to come.

How to shoot, or rather HOW TO AIM A COMBAT PISTOL

Posted by Picasa
I often get asked, typically by people who should know better where a combat gun/carry  should "shoot", or rather where they should aim their "gat" at fighting distances to hit their targets. In my opinion, ALL fighting pistols should have a Point of Impact (POI) exactly or close to the Point of Aim (POA) from 7-25 yards(Sight image 2). The crosshairs superimposed over the crosshairs show the point of impact (POI).
