Follow this link. Go about a third of the way down under the article, "Care and Maintenance."

Since we're talking 1911's:

IPSC/USPSA Open Division "Race Gun" (a.k.a. Viper by Rusty Kidd)

IPSC/USPSA Limited Division (a.k.a. Brazos Custom Gunworks Pro Series)

My first 1911. Doesn't have these grips any more and the frame has been chromed and checkered.

One I gave Dad. Kimber worked over by Evolution GunWorks. He loves it and quits asking me to give/sell him one of my 12.

The reason for the pics is to show a variety. In the Open pistol, I'll easily shoot (prior to the Army) about 35k rounds per year. In the Limited, about 15-20k. The Springfield, about 5k. All run flawless. Now while all the mechanical stuff helps with that (good reloaded ammo, proper general care and maintenance and all built by the best gunsmiths) preparation prior to shooting is a big key too.

For me, I lube the rails (obviously). I also place a little on the barrel at the locking lugs. Lastly, a little on the guide rods. After that, just keep them clean and the trigger group lubed and you're good to go. I send all my pistols back to their 'smiths once a year (during the off season) for a tune up. Just checking for burrs or replacement parts. My Open and Limited pistols have trigger pulls at < 2# so I make sure they're running at their best so that I can too.

Thanks. Gotta have the magwells for 29+1 rounds in .38 Super (Open) and 20+1 rounds in .40 S&W (Limited).
