Thread: 1911 gunsmithing tools
Alright, I had a post a while ago about drop in parts for a PT1911 and after some research I'm finding that you really can't drop in parts to a 1911. Well, you can, but if you don't have things fitted right you can have some problems down the road and maybe the ATF banging your door down for converting a handgun to full auto.
So my question is, could you guys point me toward the exact tools I will need to replace my sear, hammer, and hammer strut? Maybe even my safety too? I've looked around and I can't find a clear cut answer on what exactly you NEED to complete this task of fitting these pieces.

“There can be no sanction or penalty imposed upon one because of his exercise of constitutional rights.”
