THE FOLLOWING IS AN EMAIL FROM A PROJECT MEMBER.
October 24, 2006
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed Project Street Gun. I've
learned so much from your DVD and Mr. Camp's books. The DVD took me step by step
thru the whole process and you made everything so easy to understand. Your
patience and the sharing of your knowledge during all my phone calls greatly
exceeded my expectations. It's rare these days to find someone like you and Mr.
Camp who are so helpful. The best part about this experience is not only did
I find a Gunsmith I could trust I feel like I made a new friend. I am looking
forward to performing the Street Gun Project on my Series 80 pistol next.
Thank's for everything.
PLEASE NOTE: AFTER GETTING MANY CALLS FROM PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY MUST ATTEND A CLASS, THIS IS NOT TRUE. NO ONE HAS TO GO ANYWHERE, THESE KITS ARE SUPPLIED TO EACH PROJECT MEMBER AND THEY CAN WORK AT THEIR HOME AT THEIR OWN PACE WHETHER IT BE WHEN THEY RECEIVE THE KIT OR 3 MONTHS FROM NOW OR 6 MONTHS FROM NOW OR ANY ANY FUTURE DAY THEY HAVE TIME. NO ONE IS EVER REQUIRED TO TRAVEL ANYWHERE FOR ANY REASON. THIS IS A DO IT AT HOME PROJECT WHEN YOU HAVE TIME.
Mr. Camp and I have decided after hearing from so many people that already own Colt Government model series 70 and series 80 Pistols, that it is time to offer them the very same kit we have been making for the Springfield Armory Mil-Spec 1911 pistols.
I am able to add some more people at this very time as we have some additional openings. If you have a Colt Series 70 with a straight spur hammer that has not been worked on this will work for me. If you have a Colt Series 80 with an oval hammer I can do this project for that design also using my Series 80 DVD.
As long as I know the very details of what 1911 you own I can make the kit. We buy the very best parts and springs and each kit will contain approx. 20 pieces. I will accept the Colt stainless steel pistols for this project. The Springfield Armory stainless steel pistols are much more of a problem for me.
I am having Stainless Steel hammer springs made for this project in the standard factory rating of 23 lbs so that there is no chance it will rust and corrode in the mainspring housing like music wire. I will not leave anything out in order to make a first class 1911 pistol. Mr. Camp and I both agree that quality must come first. Its not about money but about pride of workmanship.
My Colt Series 80 DVD explains everything in very clear detail and I will supply a new plunger Lever type "N" that has been discontinued that will give you optimum performance. Fortunately I have some of these very hard to get plunger lever "N" 's put away for this very project.
Basically this project for a Colt will be very similar to the Springfield Armory pistol. The difference will be in how I do a few things but the results will be excellent. This project is a learning curve for you. Our intent is to make you aware of total disassembly and reassembly and then you will start to understand how the design works.
This will not teach gunsmithing, that is what I will do for you with my work. You will just learn how to do it all yourself by changing the original parts with the ones that we supply. All hammer and sear engagements will be checked on a microscope. I do not need to have your frame to make your kit as my custom jigs will allow for that.
At this time I am going to extend the cut off date until next Friday which is October 20, 2006 to give a few of you a chance to read this.
THIS WILL NOT KEEP ME FROM MAKING THE KITS FOR THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE ALREADY SIGNED UP. WE ARE RIGHT ON SCHEDULE WITH OUR CURRENT PEOPLE. WE ARE JUST OPENING UP THE FIELD TO INCORPORATE THOSE WHO ALREADY OWN A COLT GOVERNMENT MODEL.
Please email me, my email is located on my website and you can use the link below.
if you have any interest and I will forward your email to Mr. Camp who takes care of all enrollment after I speak with everyone involved.
Thankyou for reading all my commentaries.

NEW ITEMS AT ISMI SPRING COMPANY
NEW CHROME SILICON SPRINGS NOW AVAILABLE FROM ISMI SPRING COMPANY, CALL MARC AT 800 773 1940
Following is info for the J frame springs and the recoil springs for the
J Frame spring set: hammer & trigger rebound - price $9.95 per set
Springs are wound from certified aerospace spec chrome silicon wire. After
winding the springs are then heat treated and stress relieved. The hammer
spring is slightly lighter than the nominal stock spring while the trigger
rebound spring is approximately 11% lighter than the stock spring. Bear in
mind, that due to variances in bulk lots of material, we have measured as
much as ± 25% variance in the load exerted by the stock music wire springs
as well as some of the more popular aftermarket music wire springs. The
design of the hammer spring will insure reliable ignition under all
circumstances and temperature extremes. The lighter trigger rebound spring
will provide for a smoother & lighter single action trigger pull.
Operating temperatures are important as wire mills do not recommend the use
of music wire when temperatures are 0° F or lower. The maximum service
temperature for music wire is 250° F but spring performance can be affected
at temperatures as low as 175° F. Chrome silicon has a service temperature
range of -100° F to 750° F.
Because of the design parameters, materials & post-winding processing; the
ISMI chrome silicon springs will take a significantly smaller amount of set
than their music wire counter parts.
Smith & Wesson M&P recoil springs - price $8.95 each
ISMI recoil springs for the S&W M&P pistols are wound from certified aerospace
spec chrome silicon wire. After winding the springs are heat treated and
stress relieved. The recoil springs utilize rectangular section spring wire
(flat wire) similar to the factory spring. The ISMI springs will work with
the factory guide rod. Spring life should increase 10X when compared to the
music wire counterpart. Spring rates available: 13#, 15#, 17#, 20# & 22#.
