Vickers Tactical: 1911 Pistolsmith
1911 Pistolsmith Course by Larry Vickers.
**From Vickers Tactical website: “This picks up where the armorers course leaves off and allows the student to build a complete custom 1911 from a box of oversize gunsmith fit parts; complete details of fitting an oversize match barrel, slide to frame fit, fitting and blending thumb and grip safeties, trigger job, complete blending of all components for a custom pistol are covered. In addition metal checkering is discussed and practiced on a limited scale. Recommended parts and sources are also covered. This is the complete package and is a great start to anyone wanting to do get into building custom 1911's”.
When: The September 2009 is cancelled and will be rescheduled for Feb 2010...watch for the announcement!
Class is limited to 6 students
**Students will be responsible for tuition, as well as the purchase of the slide/frame, all parts and the appropriate tools. In addition, prior to the course, you should have read, and be familiar with both of Jerry Kuhnhausen's books on the 1911.
**I have a complete list of parts and tools for those interested in attending. I have also attended Larry’s Pistolsmithing Course and am happy to help with any questions you might have.
