    Damn. Didn't realize there were so many parts. Now I see why people send those off to a professional. Makes my Glock looks like Legos.

    The computer work impresses me greatly.

    The most annoying part of the video is how easy it makes things looks, it always takes me a second to line up the sear and the disconnector and getting the main spring into the main spring housing can be fun sometimes (especially w/o a vice)

    There is only one argument I have with the order things were done in. They install the sear spring then the grip safety then the plunger spring assembly and finally the thumb safety. I always put the plunger spring assembly in prior to the grip safety, if not the sear spring, but that's just personal preference.

    Really its not that hard to do a full strip and reassembly. Plus the sights the mainspring housing loop, the grip brushings, the ejector and the plunger tube are almost never removed.

    after watching that disassembly video it doesnt seem hard to replace/upgrade a safety/slide release.

    is this true because i've read it's hard :o input?

    slide release no, its pretty much plug and play. Both the grip and thumb safeties can require fitting to work properly and that can be annoying, my grip didn't require fitting to work, but my thumb safety did, its just a matter of understanding what you are doing and working slowly.

    My thumb safety took a couple hours of gentle filing. 'Course, it's the first one I ever did so I really, really didn't want to go too fast and ruin it. :p

    mine got stuck during one of the fittings, got it to go all the way in and flip to safe but that was it, took 5-10 minutes to get it out wiggling the hammer and twisting the safety. Its still wearing in a bit, its a good firm pressure to flip the safety off (even the gf thinks its alright) but it is a little bit firmer getting the thumb safety to engage, but its loosened up as time has gone by.

    Sounds too stiff, mang. I'd loosen it up a *smidge* more. Mine has a very definite click-on-click-off but it's not "work." :o

    run it by a file just a few more drags, it shouldn't be that hard to engage and disengage, and allowing it to "wear in" could lead to more issues down the line depending on where exactly it's "wearing in". The safety shouldn't be allowed to "wear in". Trigger yes, safety no.

    Disassembly isn't that hard at all, on any aspect of the 1911. And most of the parts that show assembly, like the sights hardly need to be disassembled.

    it really isn't "work" it would be if it was a regular thumb safety, but tactical gives just enough extra leverage for it to be perfect. Its at the point where I can reliably cycle the safety off or on with my thumb, but at the same time if it were to be uses as a carry would not trip rubbing on fabric or some such things like the loose stock one would.

    I'll give her a few quick drags of the file and a quick run over a stone next time I am in the gun room.
