    Browning designed many parts of the 1911 pistol to be used as tools in its own disassembly and assembly.

    Even though I don't own a 1911, I thought this was a very interesting webpage!

    An interesting read. I always use the base of my Wilson 47D's as a "bushing wrench" when fieldstripping my 5" Kimber. It helps push thespring cap down as I rotate the bushing w/myfingers. Works great!

    Very interesting read. Learned something new. Already emailed the link to a few friends who carry 1911s. Thanks for posting the article.
