I haven't posted here in a long time. A few years back I had posted some questions about hammer and sear geometry and received an amazing wealth of knowledge poured out into my little 1911 understanding pea brain. Now after a couple year search for a base pistol and a couple years of shooting it and learning the platform my rebuild begins.

I purchased a 1986 Springfield Standard model from a local who bought it new and shot 50 rounds thru it and put it away in his safe.

Starting point.

Fitting some parts.

A quick test fit of the ignition kit just to check function.

Now the major work.

Lots of learning happens fast once the file hits the steel.

I'm looking forward using my TR jig and putting to use all of Logman's wisdom I've picked up on setting up my trigger pre travel and overtravel. Except the overtravel screw is file to fit so I don't think I can remove it at suck it up with a vacuum. :shock:

it looks like you're doing a good job, but, there's something wrong with your trigger.
