Formal gunsmithing training has never been easier to access and can help you work on your guns, or even start a new career.
In many cases, the urge to build a firearm stems from an underlying desire to save money. However, in the case of one of the most-popular handguns in the world like the 1911, the market is saturated with a plethora of Colt clones. So how does one justify such an endeavor?
Without the proper tools, attempting to build a firearm from scratch makes about as much sense as handing the keys to a Ferrari to a pop star who's barely past puberty and telling him to enjoy the ride. Regardless, such an exercise in frustration (not to mention a waste of money) can be avoided without breaking the bank.
