A good primer kit for those new to M1911s and their maintenance, the Real Avid 1911 Pro Pack provides the basic equipment and information needed to disassemble, clean, lubricate and reassembly the classic American pistol. The Pro Pack includes: Real Avid’s Gun Boss Handgun Cleaning Kit, with rods, brushes, patches and jags from .22 to .45 cal.; the 1911 Smart Wrench, a two-sided tool to help remove Government- and Officer-size barrel bushings; and a 1911 Quick Reference Field Guide, featuring instructions and illustrations for user-level maintenance.
The kit runs about $30, and is available exclusively from amazon.com. Learn more in this week's NRA Gun Gear of the Week video with American Rifleman's Joe Kurtenbach.
