Here's a great how-to video from Gunblast.com...While most of us probably already know all of this, it is a great 10-minute refresher.

There is one from a gun smith at Wilson
Combat I love where he detail strips one with very little talk or fanfare.

Great video indeed. I shared this last night with a friend who recently bought his first 1911 ..... a Ruger.

He called me today and thanked me for the video link!

Is a very good video. Nevertheless, I have this fear of taking one of my disassembled 1911s back to the LGS and begging for help. It looks so very complicated. I do enjoy the basic field stripping. Find it relaxing. Often do it when not needed - when has not been shot. But the entire disassembly scares the heck out of me, even with a quality video.
