I'm trying to find a good gunsmith to work on my brothers Colt 1991 Officer's Model. Preferably in the Richmond area. The one smith I new who I'd trust to work on it has retired and is only working on firearms he sells.

The problem my brother is having is it is locking into battery. Occasionally it will chamber a round and the slide will not unlock to inject the empty brass or round.

This is factory ammo he is using. Once was Hydrashok and another time generic Winchester ball.

Thanks

You might try posting the problem over in the 1911 discussion forum. There are several experienced 1911 guys that may have an easy fix for you. It's too late for me to think much right now, but if something comes to mind I'll get back to you.

I know a good gunsmith in the Stafford area, Dan Rivenbark if you can't find somebody closer to you. I'll try to get his phone number for you tomorrow.

Check with Templar (Tim) here on AR15.com. He works for DeGoffs (gunshop) near Richmond and I'm sure he's know of a good 1911 pistolsmith in the area.
