Our 1911 Armorer Block is the culmination of years of tinkering on the 1911 and getting by with a box of tools and fixtures that didn't quite do what we wanted.
This 4"x4"x1.25" block is CNC machined from super tough nylon, and will give years of service. Whatever you might wish to do to your 1911 using hand tools, this block will help you do it. The block comes with hammer and sear fixture pins.
Some of the built in features of the block (see photo gallery):
- extractor tensioning
- extractor claw profiling
- holding the frame flat
- 2 blocks can hold the frame for slide/frame fitting
- hold the barrel for link removal/installation
- hammer/sear pin fixture, included
- mainspring housing assembly/disassembly
- thumb safety fitting
This block is so handy it is even used by Colt in their 1911 armorer courses!
ReviewsTomAnyone who works on a 1911 should have this. It is an awsome product!David Fontenot
Armors BlockNo more impressive than Avid or the like.. it's a breakdown cleaning block. An Armors Block is a misrepresentation. But if you are a super fan of 2011 I guess it's worth it.Brent Henry
1911 Armorers blockBlock is crafted quite nicely. Excellent design which allows one to correctly perform quite a number of functions.Zak Gutmann
Very nice partAs a CNC programmer\machinist, it's really nice looking as well as robust. Very highly recommended.James Henderson
Armorer’s blockI originally purchased this 1911 armorer’s block because it had a jig to adjust the thumb safety on a 1911. But I have found every part of the armorer’s block extremely useful. This is a great product!Lum Barrett
1911 Armorers BlockI just received the new Armorers Block and I'm impressed! It is well made with a TON of built-in features; I ordered it primarily for the fixture to hold the thumb safety at the correct angle for fitting it and it works like a champ! I'm waiting for the rest of my parts to arrive to move forward on my second 1911 double-stack build, I'll be using the Armorers Block for just about every step of the build!Darrell
could use a small improvementThis block is what is needed for building or working on a 1911. All the special cuts are there to make it indispensable. The only thing I would add is to mill a pocket in the side (with a cover) to hold the pins (or 2 sets of them). Having the pins loose and nowhere to store them onboard is an invitation to aggravation when they are lost.
VERY HIGH QUALITY MATERIAL AND MACHININGThis is a well designed item. The machining is perfect and it works just as well. I highly recommend it! I also ordered a couple for my friends to enjoy ......
Great toolWorks just as advertised. Very nice tool! Everyone should have one.Krypt Racer
Block Rocks..!!How did I ever get by without one of these..?? Had/made a couple of bench blocks to work on 1911s thru the years but the 10-8 version puts them to shame. Should be the first item purchased for any 1911 when the "must have" list is started.....It will be put to use !
