Advanced Weapons Technology is scheduling another 1911 gunsmithing class. This is not a “lego” drop in parts type class but is a very comprehensive, four-day class in which the student will leave the class with a fully custom-built 1911 (built by him or her) that meets match grade standards.

We have taught many of these classes in the past and have had numerous requests to teach them again. The class will be limited to 10 students only.

The class will cover all aspects of building a custom 1911, including (but not limited to) slide to frame fit, fitting barrels and bushings, custom sight fitting and machining, fitting and tuning extractors, ejectors, triggers, hammers, sears, disconnectors, beavertails, safeties, barrel chambering, recoil rods, reverse plugs, as well as proper spring tuning. This class will not cover comp-guns.

All technical aspects and blueprints are covered in the class as well. No Bluing or other finishing will be offered in the class but many of the finishes offered in the industry will be discussed.

If you have an interest, please contact Shooters Connection to reserve your spot in the class. The next class is set for August 19-22, at Advance Weapons Technology's shop in Russell, KY, and costs $1,200.00 per student. Lunch will be provided. The student must bring all necessary parts to the class. Shooters Connection is also offering a discount on parts purchased through them for the class.

All machining tools will be supplied for use in the shop. It is recommended each student bring digital calipers, barrel lug file, and a gunsmith screwdriver set. The "all-in" cost of the class and parts is less than the cost of purchasing a custom 1911.

Register for the next class, August 19-22, 2021 

All class sales are final.


Thanks everyone!

Thank you.
