Re: 1911 clone problem range report
these next ones show it field srripped. BTW! I "DREAMED" the solution to the problem I was having! I saw in my mind what the gun was suppose to do when fired. then I somehow gained the understanding of what was not happening and a possible area to look closely at for the problem and the solution!
look closely at the last picture...see the "t" bar and the straight bar? that was the problem. when I too thid gun apart they were just like that and so I reassembled it the same way! WRONG!!! the "t" bar is not suppose to overlap the straight bar!! it sits above it and as the slide comes back it "PUSHES" the straight bar down to release the sear! this allows the sear to catch the hammer in the cocked position!
its funny but a little over a year ago I could not have figured this out. the knowlege I have gained on this board has got me to this point! THANK YOU ALL!!
As I get Older, I have come to understand why our Founding Fathers chose our countrys motto to be "IN GOD WE TRUST", somehow they knew in the future WE would come to the point that WE COULD NO LONGER TRUST THE ONES WHO RUN IT!
