How can I learn to detail strip my 1911? As I learn more about them, it seems that every few thousand rounds it would be a good idea, but I don't know how, and I'm not "mechanically intuitive." Are there videos, good books, classes, etc. that would help me learn? Anything online?
One hint, do it indoors, was cleaning my colt Sunday,on the back porch, pulled out the thumb safety, and the plunger spring took off to who knows where.
