Congrats :wavey: Nice looking 1911.

Ammo: Just stay with a name brand and you will be fine. Winchester, Federal, Remington, Hornady Etc....

Mags: Wilson Combat, Ed Brown, Tripps, Mecgar, Chip McCormick are just some of the good ones

Cleaning: Just watch a few of the videos on yourtube for how to and just basic cleaning supplies as with all other firearms.

Ah yes the great grip collection, no 1911 guy is truly a 1911 guy unless they own 6 sets of grips for every 1911 they own. :rofl:

Not sure if you know but make sure any grips you buy are cut for the ambi safety your gun has.

Actually, with that style ambi, he doesn't need the slot underneath the grip. In fact, I was just looking at my Daly EFS, which is basically the same 1911, and it doesn't even have a cut out on the top of the grip.

Its just a standard right side 1911 grip.

Here's a good video, especially if you're not familiar with field stripping.

I'm not usually a fan of larger sized rollmarks, but I think that looks fantastic. Nice piece!

When you're cleaning it, check the firing pin channel for packing grease.

I don't think Armscor builds anything stainless.

Well I was thinking that a 'tactical' pistol would not be silver! It is sexy though.

Bac,

If you look at the picture he posted, it looks like there is a little notch for the extended safety to slot into. Here I'll post a pic...

As opposed to

I'm not sure if that's something that the previous owner did or what, but it looks different than your picture as well. :dunno:

Upon further inspection, the right side grip does have a notch cut out on the top of the grip that does not appear to be factory like the notch on the bottom corner.

you can easily duplicate it with a quality file



........or ditch the ambi!!!!
