Restoring Randall 1911s is challenge. Depending on the current condition of the pistol, it can take a few weeks to months to find the right parts, re-finish the surfaces, re-fit components, and ensure functionality.
The resurfacing of pistol is a manual process. Each component, slide, and frame is hand re-surfaced and finished to produce the best possible result. This includes bead-blasting components, hand sanding, hand polishing, and then re-fitting the pistol to a near new condition.
But, we’re not miracle workers. There are some parts that are simply not available, some scratches that can’t be fully removed, and other issues with 40 + year old pistols.
The goal is really simple…find authentic parts or find period correct parts (made in the late 70’s through mid-80’s), refinish all surfaces, replace worn springs (when needed), and test the pistol using “dry fire” rounds that are weighted correctly to ensure proper function of the pistol.
