    And it still 'Shoots' ,,,,,

    Friend of a friend was at the range and said his weapon's trigger pull was a little 'gritty'. A quick disassemble ,,,,, left no doubt as to why. And was accurate to boot.

    Hawk ,,,,,, can’t answer that. The gentleman bought the weapon used many years ago from a gun store in Denver. The pistol was tuned for a competition gun. However, the current owner kept it in his truck and carried it while guiding elk hunters. Look close at the upper middle of the sear, there’s an elk hair protruding.

    The takeaway here is that the 1911 is like an ak, right? Give it a dirt bath, sprinkle a bit of elk blood, maybe drag it behind your truck, and it will still fire.

    Not really surprising at all. There are far more 1911’s out there that have never had a detail strip done on them than 1911’s that have.
