Well peeps I got my feet wet yesterday afternoon. A while back it dawned on me that my Range Officer had a cheap no name hammer spring in it, and I thought that's not kool and I ordered a Wolff spring for the pistol. Before yesterday all I could do besides a detail strip was take out the firing pin and extractor, well I watched you tube videos on replacing hammer springs till I was blue in the face and I had a guy that knew how to do it stand over my shoulder to make sure I didn't screw up and I changed out the spring. It was a piece of cake really, so now I have that under my belt:thumbsup::supergrin:

So the question begging to be asked is was it worth the adventure?

Function wise, I mean

Good job..curious, so you weren't breaking down MSH when you "detail stripped"?

Your above quote was why I asked. Perhaps you meant field?

It's always a nice feeling when you put things back together and there is no spare parts left on the bench. :whistling:

Good job okie.Once you detail strip a few times it's as easy as a Glock.:wavey:

I haven't replaced any parts in my ACII (yet), but when I brought it home I detail stripped it, and it was an adventure! Never had a 1911 apart before, but it was fun.
