Distracting Commentary 2/23/2014
The gunsmiths featured in this series are awesome! Practically all fitting is done freehand with no jigs or fixtures. Shows the importance of learning how to file properly. Very informative. A few neat tricks of the trade. I find the off-camera questions to be distracting and time wasting. Most of these questions are silly and not useful. The videos would be much better without them.

Youll Want to Run this Marathon of Knowledge Over and Over 12/26/2010
Whomever said that learning cant be fun has obviously never watched the DVDs comprising this set. In fact, if obtaining a higher education were as enjoyable as watching these great DVDs, we would all have Doctorate degrees. Whether you are presently a pistolsmith wanting to enhance your knowledge base and increase your skill level or one who simply wants to know how a basic 1911 is transformed into a masterpiece, you will find these DVDs invaluable. Combining a step-by-step format with detailed camera work, Wilsons craftsmen explain and demonstrate the Alchemy-like processes required to turn your 1911 steel into gold. This set reminds me of a really good book; you cant put it down; you dont want to stop until youve reached the end. With around eight hours of run time you can participate in a Wilson marathon and never break a sweat. This set is highly educational, enjoyable and you will want to watch them over and over.
