We do get carried away don't we, Sorry.

I would like to someday take mine apart polish everything but I must say I have no complaints with what I have. I can't imagine them being any smoother than they are now.
Yeah same here.........I'm sure there's an improvement...........but if it's smooth already and running fine as is.............would the improvement be worth the effort.......,toss up I think...

as I have recently discovered, you can OVER polish parts...whom ever owned my Thompson 1911 prior over polished the ramp and I'm having feed issues...the angel is all off. :sad:
many more times damage is done with a Dremel than anything good

I have but the cost...I already dumped about $250 into his $400 dollar pistol... How much does that run?
That sucks........on the other hand if you like the gun, and other than the issue probably caused by the previous owner with the over zealous dremel...........which in the hands of most have caused more damage to guns than not........it just might be worth replacing the barrel......

I would think if it's a standard spec 1911 a replacement barrel would run about $150...........don't you think Toney ?

That's not too bad...I have a gun smith buddy working on it to ensure that is what it is. We've replaced the extractor and polished that and replaced the sere, hammer, grip safety tang and got the pull down to 2.5 lbs. It just chooses sometimes not to go completely into battery. Not always, it improves with JHP rounds. I thought I'd have to replace the receiver?
I had a lot of that type work done on a metro arms officers 1911......and basically the only thing stock left is the frame, barrel, slide, and slide release, also a trigger / action job, along with tightening the slide to frame fit.......the gun is basically a custom now and is a sweet and accurate shooter........

Might as well what you got into it for the necessary fix, I don't think you could replace it with anything nicer....
