The 1911 Toolbox
Apparently, if you own a 1911, you’ve already got the tools you need to maintain it (minus the cleaning stuff).
Browning was indeed a genius. Having said that, using the parts of a 1911 as dis-assembly/reassembly tools is hard on them, and should be done only when proper tools are unavailable. The wear on the assorted gun parts is considerable.
It’s always fun to get a bet going when people don’t believe that a 1911 can be detail stripped without any tools.
