The 1911 has survived virtually unchanged for 100 years and is still the preferred sidearm for many law enforcement and Special Forces units. It is considered to be an expert’s firearm and takes many years of practice to master. 1911 shooters are almost fanatical in their love for John Browning's classic firearm. However, your 1911 will become offended at your lack of devotion if not properly cared for, cleaned, lubricated and consistently checked for proper function.

This is a "hands-on" class where students will be working with their own 1911. The course of instruction will include:

+ Basic operation and function
+ Interaction of parts including safeties and fire control group
+ Proper safety checks of the 1911
+ Disassembly
+ Inspection of parts for excessive wear
+ Extractor tension
+ Maintenance and lubrication
+ Reassembly
