Hi all,
I dismantled my 1911 and polished it to a mirror finish. I followed a youtube video on how to dismantle which was fine except that the hammer assembly came apart and I have not been able to put it back. The video shows everything but that part.
Would any member be able to help me with this problem. I am sure that others might have a similar problem.

I would very much appreciate any help you can give me.

Thank you.

Texas

Howdy Tex,

I am sure you will get a responses from someone or two who have taken their 1911's all the way apart.

Meantime we like to ask new members to introduce themselves in the introduction forum section so we can get to know you if you plan to stick around.

Good luck with the re-assembly and look forward to getting to know you.

Thank you.
Unfortunately the hammer assembly had to be taken apart to polish it. And the picture shows it in one piece.
And all the youtube videos that show how to reassemble the gun does not show the trigger assembly.

Thank you.
The only problem is that there are 3 parts to that assembly and the order they are placed back is what I don't know.
The gun parts now look fantastic with the mirror finish. I am also hope to change the grips to black from brown.

By the way if anyone is interested the price of the Tanfoglio 1911 is only $104 on Amazon and free shipping if you or a friend has "Prime"

Thanks again.

If you are going for black grips, I would recommend the real 1911 Pachmayr grips - there are several types.
You need to remove some inner material for the CO2 cartridge, but they otherwise fit perfectly.
I got mine at Al Flaherty's Outdoor Store (Toronto). They also have a number of other 1911 grips.
