Baseball, hotdogs, apple pie and Chevrolet. Who would have thought that the creators of a 1970s ad campaign could have so accurately described the ingredients of America? Not me. That is because though they may have set out to do just that, they were not exactly successful. With current rough estimates putting firearms in about 40 to 50 percent of American households, the word firearm should have been thrown in there somewhere – baseball, hotdogs, apple pie, firearms and Chevrolet. Now that is more like it.
Or, you could replace the word firearms with something a little more specific, like say the 1911 pistol, which is inarguably one of America's most iconic pistols. Developed by John Browning during the wee years of the 20th century, the 1911 was formally adopted by the United States Army on March 29, 2011. The rest is history. And oh what a history it has been.
If you are lucky enough to own a 1911 pistol, make sure you take care of it. After all, there is nothing more depressing than an out-of-commission 1911. That is exactly why we here at Keepshooting.com have decided to stock scores of replacement parts – parts like the 1911 disconnector.
Without a properly-functioning disconnector, your 1911 may put itself out of commission. That is because the 1911 disconnector is a device that prevents a round from being fired before it is fully chambered with the slide completely in battery. In fact, if that were to happen, you might find yourself just as damaged as your pistol.
The newly-manufactured 1911 disconnector is essential to the safe and proper function of the pistol. Pick yours up today for just $10.95.
