Yep did that. Nothing crazy. Spent bout 8 hours on it today. Little glass bead( touch up blend) some Wilson combat parts. New pin new springs new extractor
De Frogged it. What a mess that crap makes. Cleaned up rough edges on sear. Slight stone work no profile changes. Polished up innards no not a utube job!!! Pretty surprised this gun ran great and grouped well. Better than I am. But inner parts were. We'll not as nice as my beat up Charles Daly parts Just need a set of grips now. Had kinda gaudy pewter ones. So it sporting the ole one of my CD. Looking for nice wood set. Kinda like my SR1911
Sorry folks. I can't get the pix fixed. New to forum

Omg!

Back in the day, when I worked part time in a bait, tackle and gun shop in Florida, we used to refer to a "fell apart" gun like yours as a "Bag Job". That was because they usually arrived at the shop in a brown paper bag accompanied by the proud owner. He cheerfully proclaimed that, "I took it apart, can you fix it?"

As Alan Jackson sang in one of his songs, "It ain't no problem, it just takes money!!!" :eek::eek::eek:

That's a good one. Going forward I have another bag job in the works. Started on my Charles Daly and it's in 2 bags. Lol. One for the shop near the mill. One with the stones and wet dry paper for internals in man cave next to TV BAG JOB. I like that. Should be my forum name. Lol

I always looked at the "BAG JOBS" as a challenge. I never failed to return one to working condition. Most just required a hell of a lot of cleaning, an exploded view chart and a liberal supply of "Four Letter Lineman Talk"!!! The shop owner allowed me to charge whatever I felt like to re-assemble "BAG JOBS". Some re-builds left a terrible mark in the owner's wallet!!:eek::eek:

BTW, I grant you full permission and license to use the term "BAG JOB" as you choose and see fit!!! :D:D Enjoy!!;);)

We used that term back in the day but it meant that we picked up the last of the girls that no one else desired at closing time. The next day we would ask if ya got lucky last night and the reply was always "Yeah, but the chick needed a bag over her face she was so ugly." Hence the term "Bag job"

We also used the term "Bag Job" but what was worse was a "Two Bagger". That's where you put a bag on her head and you put one on yours in case hers fell off.
