Our 1911 section and youtube is a good start plus the 1911 forum. We cover just about everything even taking it down and other great features.
"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms." -- Thomas Jefferson
"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
-- Thomas Jefferson

Video breakdowns are great ways to learn how to strip one to its frame and put it back together with ease. I actually watched the Armscor video before i bought my RIA 1911, which made it feel like second nature taking it down for the first cleaning.
"I am a better American today because of Barack Obama. Hear it loud, hear it clearly. I am a better American today because of Barack Obama. I know what my country has done, both good and bad. I have a deep appreciation of what this country is and what the American people are capable of. This is not a setback. This is a challenge and believe me, the American people are up to the challenge,...." -Glenn Beck
