Thinking about building my own 1911
I have gotten the 1911 itch again. I have built a few AR's recently and while its apples and oranges I know, I still would like to try it. I am not a gunsmith/pistolsmith but tinkering is something I enjoy doing and I have a mechanical background and a love for guns. Anyone have any must reads, tips to get me pointed in the right direction or tooling suggestions? I have owned Springfield, Kimber and Taurus 1911's in the past and kick myself for parting with them. I think this will be a project build rather than a quick gathering of parts throwing them together and hoping for the best. I want this to be my custom 1911 so I will try to use quality parts where necessary and budget parts where appropriate. Thanks for reading.
