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!
ReviewsDarrellThis 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 !Dave Nowlin
A great productToday I used this product for the first time. I feel my money was well spent and I am sure that the more I use this product the more I will like it. I used it while working on a Springfield Armory Stainless Loaded Target. I broke it down and changed the sear and disconnector. It was great in showing the relationship of the hammer and sear and checking to see how well they mated. It will be useful in the future while replacing thumb safetys.
Great multi purpose bench blockThis tool offers more options than other and the quality is much better. Being able to do a variety of job that other bench block can't do is a plus. 10-8, nice work.
Great task specific toolThis is a great product for use with the 1911 pistol. It is very well made and rugged for hard use. I am very satisfied with this product, however I would like to see the holes a tad bit deeper in order to allow more room for the pins to drop when they are removed from the weapon. Very satisfied with this new tool and am looking forward to years of service with it.Jordan Gogov
Top notch block!When I received this product I was very impressed with the design and the construction of this block. I really liked how you can do multiple tasks on the block to keep my 1911 running like a boss! Absolute great product 10-8. Keep it up!Joel Turner
Great product!This product is well made with good instruction sheet. I have previously bought the Wheeler block, but this is the one staying on the bench!Rubert Darrell Adair
Excellent armorer's block.This armorer block is perfect for 1911 work. The hole for the thumb safety works greate. Also good for adjusting the extractor, just a greate all around armorer block.
