Who can I send my gun to to have it "tuned"?
#1
I'm getting a 1911 in 9mm very soon and I want it to be as reliable as possible and feed everything that its.. fed. I imagine that involves polishing feed ramps and stuff like that, but I'm no expert. Is there anyone on the forum that does what I'm asking for? Or should I just attempt to do whatever I need to do on my own?

I'd be more comfortable doing this on something I wasn't going to carry every day, but since I plan to with the 1911 I'd rather have someone with experience working on them do it.

Track down a gunsmith named Chuck Lutz. Last I heard he was in Easton. Wizard with the 1911

The other thread says you are buying one today, so your mind is set on a 9mm, that's fine. But why are you looking for someone to "work" on it. Do you not trust the gun you are buying? If not, why buy it? Is the gun you are getting prone to ftf's? I don't get it. Buy it, take it to the range and shoot the crap out of it, with ammo you plan on using. If there is any problem, then have it looked at. You are putting the cart before the horse in my opinion. If you are not sure what needs to be done, then why have it done, it may need nothing at all. I have a Springfied Armory 1911, Champion series, never, ever had a problem with ftf or fte since I took it out of the box. Do your research, if the gun gets good reviews, shoot it first.

Shoot it a bunch at a range and maybe find a member close by familiar with 1911 reliability to meet you and help you out.

I'd love to help but I own a Glock so I don't know anything about them there fancy race-car 1911's.

I've just heard about 9mm 1911s being more finicky in general. I haven't heard any problems from these in particular. I actually wanted to ask someone knowledgeable about this these questions you just asked me. I also want night sights installed but I could possibly do that myself.

I used to work with Chuck Lutz. He's not all that great with the 1911. He staked the plunger tube on a coworkers 1911 and it fell off after less than a hundred rounds. Most of the stuff that came in for him to work on was sent back to the factory for repairs. There are far better options out there. Cylinder and Slide comes to mind. There's another guy in northern PA that does 1911s. He has build classes once in awhile. I've read good things about his work.

I recommend Sean @ CDI Custom Knife & Gun in Chalfont. He's an awesome gunsmith.
