    It is. When I'm done it'll be better than new.

    I don't doubt that for a second! You'll have to get us some pics when finished. Did any of the rest of the pistol experience damage in the process of the squib and subsequent firing/boom? I'm just curious if the slide comes out fine in the end, and how the other parts hold up in an unfortunate situation like that.

    I wondered how you disassembled it. Thanks for the pic.
    Harboring increased optimism in the survival of the Second Ammendment as a result of favorable recent events.

    The rest of the gun was fine, there was no damage to the slide or the frame which I inspected to make sure. Now I just need to fit a new barrel and bushing and slide stop pin

    So when I walk in to see the local armorer/smith, is there a long solid trigger I can suggest that works with SA?

    Any trigger you like once fitted should fit in a SA 1911. The lighter the trigger pull weight you desire the lighter the physical weight of the trigger should be to prevent trigger bounce. Yes triggers require fitting.

    Good info, thanks. I wasn't looking for lighter, just longer. I also have an arched main spring housing because I think it fills the hand much better. But that finger is back at an angle. I suppose everybody 6'2 and up is that way.
