CD Description



Home Gunsmiths: Make your own customized 1911.
Step-by-step instructions with TONS of photos.


This is not an “assembly/disassembly” CD; This Disk shows exactly how to do your own custom work on a 1911 pistol in your own home using your own tools:
If you have ever wanted to know how to do it yourself, then read on.


Watch how an average Joe can customize a 1911 easily and inexpensively in his own home using inexpensive machine tools like the Grizzly mini-mill and a dremmel tool. Think you can't do it? Not true you can and this disk will show you how.......


Here’s a sample of what you’re going to see:
- Colt 1911 Custom touches
- checking front straps
- cocking serrations
- V-type barrel porting
- installing a beaver tail grip safety
- installing front and rear sights (dovetail and stake on)
- Parkerizing at home
- Bake-on finishes
- Trigger Jobs
- Lower and flare ejection port
- Frame/Slide lapping
- Jeweling
- much, much more......

All the custom touches you have always wanted to know about .


You learn by following along. I take you though the entire Process step-by-step.



The CD includes:

  • The entire contents of the web site so you can browse the projects offline. The pictures load lightning fast since they don't need to download.( Sistema project and 80% Commander project )

  • Over 300 additional photos that never made it to the web site (hey, I couldn't post em all you know)

  • All "shop notes" from my 3 ring binder. Stuff I've learned along the way.

  • Full motion AVI movies of various project steps...milling, filing, fitting and horsing around.(High quality 608x464 resolution)

  • A custom easy to use navigation program for finding your way around on the CD. Including a really cool movie viewer built right in....

  • License application form and more.....

  • Searchable "Supplies" catalog of hard to find tooling and parts (special discount prices available ONLY to home smiths)

  • Professional quality CD distribution
