Think I will just contuinue to do it the GI way. If it's worked for over 100 years it must be ok for my non Pro-Competition Kimber.
9mmepiphany was being facetious, so no, you don't have it straight. Thats why he used the devil emoticon
He's a highly respected professional firearms instructor, he doesn't pry on handgun parts with screwdrivers.
Use whatever method you want on your Kimber. But for tight fitted 1911's with standard recoil systems the video shows the best way. I'm well past the age where I try to make horses drink after leading them to water. If they prefer a different stream thats fine.
