Custom 1911 Pistol Build Class (10 DAYS)
Students will be guided through the entire process of building their own precision 1911 type pistol. Students will receive instruction in techniques, procedures, proper use of tools/jigs and theory required to build an exceptionally reliable and accurate 1911 pistol. They will then apply these methods, under supervision, to build their pistol. Class lectures will cover troubling shooting and in-depth discussions on the function and the why of specific methods and modifications of the 1911 pistol. At the end of the course, each student will have built and test-fired their 1911 pistol and will have been provided various informational papers and a build checklist. Students will be required to purchase a “kit” provided by the instructor. This kit will provide all the parts required, less sights and grips, in order to keep the class instruction standardize and to prevent excessive time spent fixing and modifying substandard parts. The parts in the kit will be sourced from several quality manufacturers and will include a Nighthawk frame, slide, and Kart Precision barrel. Students will receive a letter that details options and procedures for ordering and payment for their kit. Out of state residents will be required to coordinate with an FFL in their state of residence to receive and transfer the frame to them. The instructor will provide the kits at cost plus NC sales tax. Instructor: Tim Davis *(SS) Self-supporting. Tool List
