    The problem with the pencil test is that the safety plunger can be partially unblocked and when the firing pin strikes it, it pushes it out of the way. If it strikes it even a little bit, the two...

    Negatory good buddy. The nose of a .45 bullet strikes the frame's feed ramp lower than you think. Even lower if it's a big hollowpoint and especially the first round out of an 8-round magazine. ...

    That is the frame Bill mentioned earlier. Maybe he can post a photo of the welds on the left front rail that had been given the blacksmith treatment.

    Not only is the heat affected zone very small but the composition of the filler material and the amount of build up are carefully controlled. It doesn't get much better than this for welding on a...

    The rails along the mag well don't do much to support the slide so it's extra work for very little return. When using the old fashioned peening method of tightening the slide to frame fit the mag...

    Checking the plunger tube regularly is good but many 1911s come with plunger tubes that are not properly staked IMO. I like to see the holes flared or chamfered on the inside of the frame, the studs...

    SIG's Choice of Grease

    Most likely it's Mil-Comm TW25B, Sig's grease of choice. I don't think it contains any lithium.
