    New 1911 Assembly

    I recently acquired a RIA 2011 TAC (the one with the rail) frame with all the parts assembled, and purchased a RIA slide. I am in the process of hand lapping the slide to smooth out the one tight area. The remainder of the slide and barrel parts are on the shelf or on order. After I get everything together and assemble, I would like to have someone who knows what they are doing look it over. I have read about barrel fitting and extractor tension, but no experience - or tools.

    I am in the Land O' Lakes area.

    Any suggestions?

    I'm sure Rick McC will be on later today and I know he will steer you right.... he was out with his wife this morning.

    I can't help you at all with your question. I know next to nothing about 1911's and I always go to Rick with my questions...

    I'll glad to help you any way that I can, and will send you a couple of links to some in-depth 1911 information.

    You're welcome to contact me at your convenience.

    John:

    How's the work progressing?

    Are you going to take some pictures as you progress? That'd be interesting to have here on our forum.

    Thanks!

    The barrel fitting was going to be more than I could handle. Arnel, their master gunsmith, has built several for me, so I decided to not screw it up. After talking with the folks at Armscor, I ended up sending the parts back for them to build.

    After you get it back; there's still a lok of satisfaction and experience you could get by fitting some upgraded internals.
