The love for 1911

From an email I received from Rock Island / Armscor

3. SOLVENT AND LUBRICANT

You have plenty of choices here. Everyone has a preference. Some prefer to use barrel solvent and separate lubricant, whereas others go for an all-in-one solution. Some popular options include Hoppe’s No. 9, Balistol and Lucas Gun Oil. Some people even reach for a can of WD-40. Armscor’s own gunsmiths rely on Slip 2000 products.

That is a great video! I also love mechanical watches. That video actually spoke to me. When I was in the Army i used a 1911, and a M16 / M4. I was so sad when they went to the 9mm. Just not the same weapon.
