    1911 Duty Tune DVD set

    Money well spent. The tuning process is presented in a very clear and concise manner. Mr. Yam is definitely the Bob Ross the 1911 world.

    Well made and thorough. Hilton brings an extensive amount of knowledge and experience to the tuning of the 1911, with some humor and sarcasm. Well worth the price of admission.

    Hilton's my son's favorite TV star

    The information and knowledge you'll get from this video is tremendous and I know it gave me the confidence to do some great work on my 1911s. It also gave me even something better than I that. Not long after my second son was born he got very sick, couldn't sleep for 2 days except to drop from exhaustion and the only thing he enjoyed was listening to this DVD series. I don't know why but I decided to put it on to try to stay awake and we both ended up falling asleep. Even when he got to feeling better putting this DVD on help to relax him. Thanks a bunch of Hilton, the information is terrific and this DVD series actually helped my family through a tough time.

    Three DVD Set, 1911 Duty Tune

    This is a great set of DVD's that go further into detail work on the 1911 than I'm willing to do, but I wanted to know those details, as well as the basic duty tune. I learned a lot by the time I got through just the first few chapters of the first disc.

    Great 1911 Gun Smithing video I like how Yam narrates his video, he explains how and why is doing the work. I think it's one of the best 1911 tuning videos available.

    1911 Duty DVD

    One of the best videos ever made to show how to tune and fit a 1911 for all disciplines. I commend H.Yam on a job well done.

    Duty Tune DVD

    Hilton Yam is the Bob Ross of 1911's. Teaches you what you need to know and why. Instruction and the confidence to do it. Unlike painting there are some unhappy parts if you remove to much material. Remember "File is for flats, Drexel for round."

    1911 Duty Tune DVD

    This is by far the best DVD instruction on the 1911 I have seen! Hilton does an amazing job of demonstrating the tuning process as well as providing explanations for what he is doing. I was able to easily follow along and do the work to my 1911 as I was watching him. Step by step and very detailed instructional material. Thank you!

    1911 Duty Tune

    Great set of videos. It happened that the SA 1911 model that I’ve been working on was the same model used in the videos. I’m new to fitting up parts to my 1911 so I really learned a lot from this video and was also able to confirm that I had been doing some things correctly. I’ll be performing pretty much all the same mods to my gun that were performed in this video so I’ll be using it as a reference often.

    Well Worthwhile

    Got this out of curiosity, always wondered exactly "what" a "duty tune" on a 1911 might consist of, and equally importantly -why- certain things might be important to be accomplished. Mr Yam does this in an engaging and easy to follow format. I'm almost convinced that he has forgotten more about the 1911 than some folks claim to know. I don't know that I'm quite ready to start stripping down one of my 1911s and trying the things he shows (I'm just not mechanically inclined), but I now know what -is- desirable and how to determine if a piece needs work.
