Pistol upgrade.

I got some new parts for my Colt 1991A1.

I've wanted to replace the plastic hammer and nylon mainspring housing for along time. I did not trust myself to do the work alone. So got a freind to help me out.

A couple years ago I bought a Wolff spring pak and replaced all the springs in the slide. Today well we had it apart we replaced the mainspring and the magazine release spring. We left the original Colt sear spring in the gun. My freind said he read somewhere that the Colt ones were the best. It looked good so its still in there. I didnt realize the disconnector was mim or I would have purchased a machined steel part to replace it. The mim part looked brand new so no regrets.

Im glad I had help. The trigger took quite a bit of fiting to fit through the frame window, and lining up them parts on the series 80 system is a trial. Trigger feels good. I think I like the longer reach. The quality of the parts from Evolution Gun Works is excellent. I wouldn't hesitate one second to do business with them again.
Range report sometime in the future.
